This study has investigated the impact of R&D capital intensity and R&D personnel intensity on innovative performance, and it has also explored the moderating effects of R&D personnel compensation incentive and R&D personnel training in the relationship above. The result shows that R&D capital intensity and R&D personnel intensity have significant positive effects on innovative performance; R&D personnel compensation incentive significantly moderates the relationship between R&D personnel intensity and innovative performance; R&D personnel training significantly moderate the relationship between R&D capital intensity and innovative performance.
