The concept of behavioural additionality of public support for private R&D and a methodological proposal for an evaluation framework in Turkey

Gök, Abdullah
The changes in the behaviour of the innovating firm that would not have been the case in the absence of the public support, behavioural additionality, is investigated in this thesis. The theoretical foundations of the concept along with the existing evaluation attempts worldwide are analysed. The need for evaluation in Turkey is established. The design of the TÜBİTAK-TEYDEB programme in question along with the related policy context is described to form a basis for the evaluation of the behavioural additionality. It is revealed that the need for an evaluation of behavioural additionality for the legitimacy of the programme from the data analysis. Finally, given such inputs, the thesis develops a methodological proposal for a framework to evaluate the behavioural additionality of the public support to private R&D in Turkey.


Experimental design with short-tailed and long-tailed symmetric error distributions
Yilmaz, Yıldız Elif; Akkaya, Ayşen; Department of Statistics (2004)
One-way and two-way classification models in experimental design for both balanced and unbalanced cases are considered when the errors have Generalized Secant Hyperbolic distribution. Efficient and robust estimators for main and interaction effects are obtained by using the modified maximum likelihood estimation (MML) technique. The test statistics analogous to the normal-theory F statistics are defined to test main and interaction effects and a test statistic for testing linear contrasts is defined. It is ...
Yield curve modelling via two parameter process
Pekerten, Uygar; Körezlioğlu, Hayri; Department of Financial Mathematics (2005)
Random field models have provided a flexible environment in which the properties of the term structure of interest rates are captured almost as observed. In this study we provide an overview of the forward rate random fiield models and propose an extension in which the forward rates fluctuate along with a two parameter process represented by a random field. We then provide a mathematical expression of the yield curve under this model and sketch the prospective utilities and applications of this model for in...
Models of response error components in supervised interview-reinterview surveys
Ayhan, Hüseyin Öztaş (Informa UK Limited, 2003-11-01)
The current work deals with modelling of response error components in supervised interview-reinterview surveys. The model considers several stages of an interactive process to obtain and record a response. The response process is evaluated as, controller-interviewer-respondent-interviewer-controller interaction setting under a supervised interviewing process. The allocation of controllers, interviewers and respondents is made by a hierarchical design for the interview-reinterview process. In addition, a cod...
The effect of Phase I sample size on the run length performance of control charts for autocorrelated data
Köksal, Gülser; Ula, Taylan Ali; Testik, Murat Caner (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
Traditional control charts assume independence of observations obtained from the monitored process. However, if the observations are autocorrelated, these charts often do not perform as intended by the design requirements. Recently, several control charts have been proposed to deal with autocorrelated observations. The residual chart, modified Shewhart chart, EWMAST chart, and ARMA chart are such charts widely used for monitoring the occurrence of assignable causes in a process when the process exhibits inh...
Estimation and hypothesis testing in multivariate linear regression models under non normality
İslam, Muhammed Qamarul (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
This paper discusses the problem of statistical inference in multivariate linear regression models when the errors involved are non normally distributed. We consider multivariate t-distribution, a fat-tailed distribution, for the errors as alternative to normal distribution. Such non normality is commonly observed in working with many data sets, e.g., financial data that are usually having excess kurtosis. This distribution has a number of applications in many other areas of research as well. We use modifie...
