VoxEU.org is a policy portal set up by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (www.CEPR.org) in conjunction with a consortium of national sites. Vox aims to promote research-based policy analysis and commentary by leading scholars. The intended audience is economists in governments, international organisations, academia and the private sector as well as journalists specializing in economics, finance and business. Assistance for the Centre’s work on Vox has been provided by the European Union, through its programme of support for bodies active at the European level in the field of active European citizenship.
Based on our initial research Bernhard and I have teamed up with Steffen Kinkel and Oliver Som, who are behind the inception of the European Manufacturing Survey, that we have used for this project. We have contributed a short summary of our revised research on the effects of offshoring on innovation in the home country.
