The aim of this study is to assess the effects of information and communications technologies (ICTs) on the firms’ capabilities to innovate in a selection of OECD countries. This findings support the hypothesis that ICTs act an enabler of innovation, particularly for product and marketing innovation, in both manufacturing and services. However, not is been find any evidence that ICT use increases the capability of a firm to cooperate, to develop innovation in-house or to introduce products new-to-the-market. These results suggest that ICTs enable firms to adopt innovation but they not increase their “inventive” capabilities.
