Abstract : This paper aims to study the impact of potential determinants for technology diffusion via patentcollaborations between emerging and developed countries in Europe by implementing aneconometric estimation with panel data. First, we use the probability of patent collaborations as theexplained variable under LOGIT estimations. Then, we use the intensity of collaborations under bothOLS-GLS and Poisson estimations. We especially study the impact of the European Union integrationof Eastern Europe countries on such technological collaborations with European Western countries.We also analyze the impact of further explanatory variables such as common borders, geographicdistance, Gross Domestic Products, populations, income inequalities, Research and Developmentexpenditures, technological gap, technological distance public expenditures in education, bilateraltrade and Foreign Direct Investments. The results show that the European integration of emergingcountries does not significantly increase the probability of patent collaborations. But it doessignificantly increase the intensity of patent collaborations. Emerging countries’ exports to developedcountries is the main determinant for both the probability and the number of patent collaborations.The impact is significant and positive.

Keywords : Technology Diffusion Patent Collaborations Econometric Estimation European Union Integration.
