We explore how knowledge-based connections to domestic and foreign locations affect the technological scope of firm innovations. Inspired by a blend of Economic Geography and International Business perspectives, we propose a theoretical framework that distinguishes between domestic subnational differences and cross-national spatial heterogeneity. Further, we combine the Penrosean view of managerial capabilities with the attention-based theory of the firm. Analyzing a sample of US-based firms bet...

We study innovation networks in emerging markets, where foreign actors have been identified as key sources of knowledge spillovers as well as progenitors of industry clusters. Focusing on connectivity as a channel for international knowledge sourcing, we widen our lens beyond multinational enterprises (MNEs) to include critical innovative actors such as research institutions (i.e. universities and research centers). We examine the geographic dispersion of co-inventor networks generated by US pat...
Firms often establish knowledge linkages to geographically dispersed locations in order to source diversified knowledge. The involvement into global knowledge networks is particularly useful for actors from emerging countries, which may seek to offset the relative backwardness of their domestic knowledge base by accessing distant and diverse technology. Yet, not all locations offer the same opportunities for knowledge sourcing. This study investigates the relationship between global city locatio...

We investigate the influence of the geography of host country knowledge sources developing different types of knowledge on the quality and generality of a foreign subsidiary innovation. We suggest that the quality of subsidiary innovation is greater when more familiar knowledge is sourced in distant host country locations. We also argue that the generality of subsidiary innovation is greater when less familiar knowledge is sourced from not too distant host country locations because the novel com...
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore the role of different learning sources in the process of capability building of Chinese firms (CFs) approaching international markets. Design/methodology/approach The paper is based on the case study of the company “Goodbaby.” The primary data sources are two semi-structured interviews with one of the firm’s managers, which have been triangulated with point of sale visits, interviews with industry experts, and secondary data such as corporate recor...

This chapter describes the global pharmaceutical industry, focusing on its most important characteristics and competitive dynamics. Several features of this industry question the fit of families as an adequate ownership and governance category. This chapter devotes special attention to analyzing the role of innovation, in reference to established literature that has extensively investigated the most important technological trajectories and discontinuities that characterize the industry’s evoluti...

Abstract Multinational corporations (MNCs) have increasingly sourced knowledge across borders, and foreign subsidiaries operations have played a critical role in MNC international knowledge sourcing strategies. The growing responsibility of foreign subsidiaries has paralleled an interest on the geography of this phenomenon by international business and international management scholars. In this chapter, we review this research. In addition, based on recent research in economics and management dr...
