    Abstract

    This paper analyses the impact of different knowledge sources of product innovation in Vietnam using firm-level data. We analyze the separate impacts of internal knowledge, collaborative knowledge, and regional knowledge. The analysis reveals that internal knowledge sources from internal R&D have a positive influence on product innovation. However, not all kinds of collaborative knowledge sources have significant effects on innovation. Only collaborative knowledge gained from inside the supply chain affects product innovation positively. Apparently, the capacity to benefit from working with knowledge institutes and absorbing knowledge from the environment do not materialize in new products.
