Abstract As emerging economy multinational enterprises (EMNEs) enter foreign countries in search of new markets, seeking to expand their knowledge bases, research on the type and nature of innovation activity is needed to address the impact of EMNEs’ choices related to international expansion. Building on prior literature on entry mode and location choices, as well as on organizational learning, we argue that how and where an EMNE expands internationally will impact the nature of its innovation....
Abstract Prior research has demonstrated the importance of government policy in fostering innovation in sectors that face market failures, such as renewable energy. We examine the impact of policy on renewable energy innovations in emerging economies, which face market as well as institutional failures. We investigate how differences in the focus of policies may drive technology development efforts in different directions. Specifically, we propose that demand pull policies foster innovations in ...

Research summary This study examines the impact of international experience (IE) on innovation performance (IP) in the context of emerging economy multinational enterprises (EMNEs). EMNE internationalization is often driven by strategic asset seeking behavior to improve their knowledge base. But, does internationalization lead to more innovation for these EMNEs? Drawing on organizational learning theory, we find a positive relationship; however, the IE–IP curve is not linear, instead it follows ...
