The Impact of Scientific Knowledge on Multinational Corporations

It has long been recognized that R&D plays a key role in the global battle for technological leadership. However, due to intense competition and rivals’ imitations, firms are not always able to reap rewards from their innovations. Mario Kafouros theoretically and empirically examines the impacts of innovation and scientific knowledge on the productivity performance of multinational corporations, and the conditions under which companies benefit from their technological discoveries. The book also investigates the extent to which the research efforts of other companies can contribute to a firm’s productivity, and how multinationals build on external inventions, ideas and knowledge.

The Innovation Impact
This book examines the issue of mergers and acquisitions (M & As) in the context of technological development, and in particular the impact of M & As on the innovation process. In so doing, the book integrates two bodies of literature, on M & As, and on innovation studies, a nexus which the editors contend represents an important step in the advancement of our understanding of both with clear implications for competitive advantage and growth of firms. Drawing on perspectives from both management and economics, the book offers a cohesive blend of theory, methodology, and a wealth of empirical material.
