This paper proposes a new taxonomy for the internationalization patterns of innovation of the BRIC countries within the global innovation landscape during the period 1990---2009. Based on the BRICs' patents granted by the USPTO, we find (1) the BRICs gradually increased their roles in the global innovation arena with various degrees of internationalization; (2) the domestic-dominant pattern has widely countered the foreign dominance of innovation, while the collaborative multi-dominant pattern h...

Based on case studies of multinational R&D centres in China, this paper views the central task of corporate R&D globalisation as: differentiating R&D units to take advantage of location-specific resources and integrating R&D efforts in multiple locations to achieve the whole corporation’s goals. Four differentiated R&D units are identified: the technology competence unit, the system competence unit, the assignment unit, and the support unit. These four units form a complete R&D system covering a...

It is often argued that multinational enterprises (MNEs) act space-less in the global economy and that they are an essential mechanism in the internationalization of the transfer of knowledge and technologies. The existence of international inner-organizational learning and synergy effects distinguishes MNEs from market-based exchange relationships and national companies (The Oxford Handbook of Innovation, 2005). With their knowledge accumulating and processing capacities, MNEs can use product, ...

The literature on venture capital (VC) has investigated the determinants of portfolio composition and the effects it has on both the investors? and the investee companies? performance. However, with Corporate Venture Capital (CVC), one might expect the relationship to be different as investments in entrepreneurial ventures are strategic means for corporations to learn about new markets and/or technologies. In this paper we analyze the strategic use of CVC by exploring the relationship between th...

This study examines the location of foreign research and development activities within China, using the 2004 China Economic Census data, published in 2006. The study reveals that the scale of foreign R&D in China is significant and involves a few thousand of foreign enterprises, much broader than what has been reported before. It also finds that foreign R&D activities in China are highly concen- trated in a few costal provinces and cities including Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Fujian ...

Purpose – China's research and development (R&D) internationalization has grown rapidly in the 1990s. However, academic research has not kept pace with it. The purpose of this paper is to study the development characteristics and evolution pattern of China's R&D internationalization, explore its challenges to China's traditional science and technology (S&T) system, and to give some suggestions for the reform of China's S&T system as well.Design/methodology/approach – An in‐depth case study about...

This paper explores overlapping competence-creating activities within the boundaries of the multinational corporation by investigating how foreign greenfield subsidiaries' technological evolution is affected by the addition of an acquired unit in the same location. Drawing upon the complete U.S. patenting activity by subsidiaries of 21 Swedish multinationals over the 1893-1990 period, we use repeated event history analysis to test a set of hypotheses concerned with the effect of this competence-...

This article examines how two types of Japanese business group networks impact on firm innovation and global learning. Both the general network and Japanese business group literature have emphasized the important role this kind of tightly knit and stable network plays in facilitating the innovation of firms. Yet little is known of the different effects of the two types of business groups on innovation: horizontal versus vertical. In this article, we argue that the horizontal business group netwo...

The rapid and persistent improvement in the performance and cost of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) with respect to their capabilities for capturing, processing, displaying, communicating and storing information provide abundant opportunities. This paper aims to explain the causes and effects of the phenomenon in which manufacturing firms integrate ICTs in their established manufacturing products. The study of this phenomenon is based on structured interviews with executives of...
