    Abstract

    In the context of global R&D, we connect literature on knowledge
    management to a network-based theoretical framework helpful to explain the
    impact of R&D globalisation on innovation performance. This framework is
    applied to two case companies, both global leaders within their respective
    industries, in order to analyse the extent to which their strategic globalisation
    of R&D activities, from Scandinavia to China, has contributed to increased
    innovation performance. Our findings suggests that close interaction and
    cross-fertilisation with local knowledge networks are of eminent importance for
    newly established R&D offsprings to improve overall innovation performance.
    Pack Tech illustrates this through a collaboration-intensive approach to
    university competitions in China.
