The economic crisis which began in 2008 has had a far-reaching impact, including effects on the innovation behavior of firms. Many companies have reduced their innovation-related activities, although some firms have been more resilient than others. Using a representative micro data panel of Spanish firms, we study the probability of companies abandoning in-house R&D during the crisis and its relationship to regional and policy factors. We find significant regional heterogeneity related to regional economic size and the type of the regional innovation system; regional government R&D support only reduces R&D abandonment rates in regions where a strong system of knowledge exploitation is in place.
