The aim of this work is to study the environment that affects and
influences in the creation of regional patents. With this purpose the patenting
process is modeled as dynamic one where, beside other
factors, its past values contribute to create synergies to continue patenting in a
feedback process. Using a dynamic panel data estimator we find that past patenting
level trends to encourage the actual one. Also, a positive and significant
effect from education, university expenditure, population density and
industrial concentration on patents is reported in the Mexican states set.
Conclusions highlight that agglomeration forces are the main factors for patenting, followed
by university expenditure and industrial concen- tration.
