Internationalization of R&D and innovation by multinational enterprises (MNEs) has undergone a gradual and comprehensive change in perspective over the past 50 years. From sporadic works in the late 1950s and in the 1960s, it became a systematically analyzed topic in the 1970s, starting with pioneering reports and “foundation texts”. Our review unfolds the theoretical and empirical evolution of the literature from dyadic interpretations of centralization versus decentralization of R&D by MNEs to...

ABSTRACTThe paper explores the respective effects of multinational enterprises (MNEs) and domestic enterprises (DOMEs) on regional productivity in the case of UK regions. The empirical evidence shows that the more intensive in terms of research and development and intangibles, MNEs have a stronger effect on regional productivity than DOMEs. However, when one controls for the origin of the MNEs, it is found that DOMEs can outperform MNEs from certain countries. It is submitted that regions that l...

Intensified competition means that multinational enterprises (MNEs) are increasingly concerned with locating innovation activities in the most appropriate locations. This had led to emerging economies in the South becoming an important destination of R&D-related foreign direct investment (FDI), departing from their traditional role as low-cost production sites. Thus far, however, our understanding of this transformation process is limited. The purpose of this article is therefore to explore the ...

The paper investigates various innovation activities adopted by SME hotels in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 16 in-depth interviews with SME hotel managers in Riyadh were carried out. In doing so, this research fills the gap i.e. paucity of research related to the innovation activities of SME hotels in Saudi Arabia. The findings indicate that SME hotels in Saudi Arabia engage in a range of innovation activities and use web applications for marketing and sales. However, their usage of computer systems and...

Emerging economies have become new destinations for knowledge sourcing, forcing Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) to reconfigure their global innovation strategies and structure. While foreign subsidiaries located in emerging economies were conventionally viewed as having market or efficiency seeking roles, they have started to evolve towards knowledge-seeking roles. We argue that the conventional wisdom shall be reassessed considering this recent shift. We empirically investigate 129 manufacturi...

We explore the link between uncertainty in economic policy, firm-level FDI, and firm hedging behavior – building upon a newspaper-based index of economic policy uncertainty (EPU). We find that the relative difference in EPU between home and host country has a significant relationship with FDI. Firms increase their FDI level in countries, which have a low level of EPU relative to their home country. In addition, firms use derivatives more intensively in response to an increase in EPU. Interesting...

This chapter explores the dyadic relationship between headquarters and in terms of their perceptions of decision-making loci and associated organisational structure. By comparing the responses of parents of Greek Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) and their subsidiaries, we find evidence in favour of a perception gap in terms of decision-making between headquarters and subsidiaries. We argue that future research needs to carefully consider and account for the perception gap and point out the impor...
