This paper focuses on the relationship between firms' technological capabilities and different forms of cooperation for innovation, paying specific attention to the role of regional location of the firm. The findings, based on the Fourth UK Community Innovation Survey (CIS4), show that cooperation within business groups, vertical cooperation with customers and suppliers, and horizontal cooperation with universities turn out to be significantly associated with firms' technological capabilities. However, it is found that the analysis for the UK as a whole masks stark regional differences in terms of the relationship between local and non-local collaborative linkages and firms' technological capabilities and competences.
