Drivers and Impacts in the Globalization of Corporate R&D: An Introduction Based on the European Experience
The globalization of R&D activities has continued its growth path as companies are increasingly trying to capture knowledge and market opportunities internationally.

This introduction to the Special Section: "Globalization and Corporate R&D" forthcoming in Industrial and Corporate Change (vol. 20 (2), April 2011) provides an update of trends in the globalization of corporate R&D. It reviews the literature on the main drivers and impacts of the process under investigation, introduces the papers for this Special Section, and offers some concluding remarks.
