Competitiveness Research Network (Europe)

 


Data description

CompNetThe Competitiveness Research Network (CompNet) provides (i) European firm-level micro-aggregate data and (ii) a diagnostic toolkit for competitiveness indicators.

CompNet is maintained by the European System of Central Banks (ESCB), the European Central Bank (ECB), the European Commission (EC), the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research of Halle (IWH), the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Tinbergen Institute.

CompNet describes its institutional mandate as to:

  • Strengthen the analytical framework for assessing competitiveness in Europe
  • Identify dynamics of competitiveness and productivity in EU countries and firms
  • Relate competitiveness indicators with aggregate outcomes (e.g. exports, economic growth).

"The dataset includes variables on employment, trade, productivity, mark-ups, financial constraints and more. Variable definitions and computation are harmonized across countries. Built at firm level, indicators are then aggregated to sectoral level (NACE 2-digit) in order to avoid confidentiality issues."
