Abstract

(VF)Parmi les formes d’internationalisation des activités de R&D, les multinationales peuvent opter pour la localisation de ces activités au sein de leurs filiales à part entière. Si ce choix peut procurer de nombreux avantages, liés notamment à l’internalisation des fonctions stratégiques, il suscite des interrogations d’ordre organisationnel. La décentralisation de la R&D peut accentuer les divergences entre les intérêts de la maison-mère et les responsables nommés à la tête de ces filiales. Des mécanismes particuliers de contrôle et d’incitation devraient être mis en place pour réussir cette forme d’investissement.(VA)Among the forms of internationalization of R&D activities, multinationals can opt to locate these activities within their wholly owned subsidiaries. Although such a choice can provide many advantages, notably in relation to the internalization of strategic functions, it raises questions of an organizational nature. Decentralization of R&D can emphasize the differences between the parent company’s interests and the managers appointed to run the subsidiaries. Specific control and incentive mechanisms should be put into place for this form of investment to be successful.
