Risultato della ricerca: Otherpeer review

Abstract

This paper focuses on the evaluation of an incentive program for local developmentimplemented in southern Italy during the last decade. In the framework of the policyinstruments aimed to reduce territorial disparities, and to support local development,territorial integrated projects (TIPs) were defined as a peculiar operational mode to implementthe Regional Operational Programmes. The resources allocated for each TIP may be aimed atthree types of interventions such as infrastructures, public actions and aid schemes. Throughan empirical analysis on the resources allocated to aid schemes, this paper investigates, at firmlevel, the possible different performances of the beneficiaries of subsidies provided by TIPs,as compared to non-beneficiaries. In particular a subset of firms which received subsidies inthe period 2002-2007 is considered, through the implementation of an empirical analysiswhich uses propensity score matching methods and a difference-in-differences approachjointly. Results show effectiveness of the program with refer to employment and sales, whilewe have mixed effects with respect to other outcome variables.
