CompNet Data Research Output

Research Output

CompNet members as well as users of the CompNet dataset have published more than 70 papers both in various working paper series and in a number of peer-reviewed journals.

CompNet's purpose is to:

  • strengthen the analytical framework for assessing competitiveness

  • identify what drives the dynamics of competitiveness and productivity in EU countries and firms

  • relate competitiveness indicators with aggregate outcomes (e.g. exports, economic growth)


The ultimate objective of CompNet is to identify the structural factors that contribute to raising the economy’s long-term growth potential, by effectively linking instruments, mechanisms and outcomes. To do so, CompNet adopts an "holistic" approach analysing the micro, macro and cross-border dimension of the topic of competitiveness. The figure below summaries how these dimensions interact and how they affect the final economic outcome.
