Abstract: This paper explores the existence and importance of financing constraints for R&D investments in large manufacturing companies representative over the 2000-2007 period of about 80% of the R&D carried out in the business sector worldwide. The main system GMM results obtained by estimating error-correction equations suggest that the sensitivity of R&D investments to cash flow variations are more important for European firms while US ones do not appear to be financially constrained.
