      SkatteFUNN ble opprettet i 2002 som et tiltak for å øke norsk næringslivs forsknings- og utviklingsinnsats. Statistisk sentralbyrå har siden 2004 evaluert ordningen. Nordlandsforskning har på oppdrag fra SSB gjennomført ...
    • Exit dynamics with adjustment costs 

      Golombek, Rolf; Raknerud, Arvid (Discussion Papers;No. 442, Working paper, 2005)
