Evaluación de la cooperación empresarial como estrategia competitiva en el sector agroalimentario: El caso español

Jesús David Sánchez de Pablo González del Campo, Pedro Jiménez Estévez

Resumen


La necesidad de las empresas de aumentar su dimensión para ser competitivas ante la alta volatilidad del entorno ha provocado la generalización de la cooperación empresarial en los últimos años. Como consecuencia existen numerosos estudios relativos a dicha estrategia, donde los aspectos más analizados han sido los factores claves de éxito y las ventajas de la cooperación empresarial, destacando los análisis empíricos realizados en sectores intensivos en tecnología. Sin embargo, la cooperación también tiene importantes riesgos asociados, por lo que, nuestro objetivo será realizar un estudio exploratorio donde se analice de forma conjunta los motivos que llevan a las empresas a cooperar y, por tanto, las ventajas que se derivan de la cooperación, y sus riesgos asociados. Frente a los análisis centrados en la cooperación basada en la innovación tecnológica, consideramos necesario aportar información sobre los acuerdos cooperativos en sectores de baja intensidad tecnológica, claves en el empleo y la economía tanto en España, Colombia y demás países con un sector agroalimentario importante.


Palabras clave
