Exploring the Interface between Foreign Invested Manufacturing and R&D in Emerging Markets

    Abstract

    The paper investigates what makes it more or less relevant to co-locate manufacturing activities and R&D activities in emerging markets within multinational companies. A framework to this end is developed and illustrated in relation to four cases from multinational companies, which have established R&D and manufacturing in China or India. The findings point to the importance of contingencies such as clockspeed, technological complexity, as well as the extent to which local adaptation is needed.
