    Abstract

    The chapter investigates the problems related to the functional integration between manufacturing activities and research and development (R&D) activities in emerging markets within multinational companies. A framework to this end is developed and illustrated through four case studies from multinational companies, which have established R&D and manufacturing in China or India. The findings point to the importance of adopting cross-function co-location drivers and contingencies, such as clockspeed and technological complexity, as well as the extent to which local adaptation is needed as an integral part of corporate relocation decisions.
