More Information
Expansive and engaging, the Research Handbook on Innovation in International Business takes a deep dive into technological, organisational, firm, and industry-level innovation. Contributions from leading experts in international business cover large multinational firms to SMEs and emerging markets, providing industry-specific insights into innovative solutions from across the globe.

Featuring chapters exploring the organisation of innovative activities across borders, the role of alliances and networks on innovation, and the impact of the internet on internationalising SMEs and thus advancing global innovations, this incisive Research Handbook constitutes a richly-detailed study into the field. Contributors investigate innovation on a vast scale, offering a critical examination of EU regulation in facilitating or inhibiting innovation in industry, as well as delving into the current economic policies of special economic zones in Russia and China as areas for innovative solutions.

Academics, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of international business and organisational innovation will find this engaging Research Handbook an invaluable resource, for its wide-ranging exploration into innovations in international business as well as its perspectives on innovation in this age of accelerated technological development.
Critical Acclaim
‘Handbooks are seldom innovative, even when they are about innovation, but this volume on innovations in international business stands out by its refreshingly diverse and up-to-date collection of contributions. Editors Dikova and Ipsmiller have done an excellent job in putting together a Handbook that covers considerable ground in terms of topics, industries, and geography, and which provides a nice balance between useful overviews and new empirical insights. The list of authors includes several well-established professors in the area as well as upcoming researchers. In all, a most useful addition to the literature on the evermore important issue of innovation for firms that compete globally.’
