National Systems of Innovation and the International Technology Strategies of Multinationals
AbstractThe paper first introduces typologies of the production subsidiaries and R & D laboratories through which MNEs activate global competitive and creative strategies. These are used to describe, and assess the implications of, the diverse ways in which MNEs paricipate in the national system of innovation (NSi) of individual countries. Such NSIs are seen as increasingly the drivers of national competitive progress. The analytical concern is then with whether MNEs' involvement increases or lessens the ability of an NSI to propel the sustained development of an economy. It is argued that the requirement is for policy to address the need for a balanced NSI and to comprehend the implications of the selective nature of MNE's involvement.
