Technology Alliances In Emerging Economies: Persistence And Interrelation In European Firms Alliance Formation
Source: United Nations University
The authors analyze patterns and determinants of technology alliance formation with partner firms from emerging economies, with a focus on European firms' alliance strategies. They examine to what extent European firms' alliance formation with partners based in emerging economies is persistent, that is: to what extent prior collaborative experience determines new alliance formation, and they compare this pattern with alliance formation with developed country partners. Second, they examine to what extent prior engagement in international alliances with partners from developed countries increases the propensity to form technology alliances with partners based in emerging economies and vice versa (interrelation).
