It has become clear over the past few decades that enterprises not only produce and sell abroad but increasingly also develop goods and services outside their home countries; a development now known as the internationalisation of business R&D. This book presents a comprehensive picture of the current state of internationalisation of R&D in the business sector.

The contributors explore key patterns of the internationalisation of R&D across various countries and sectors using case studies to underpin empirical evidence. They examine the drivers of the process, revealing the impacts of R&D internationalisation on both home and host countries using both qualitative and quantitative analysis. Topics discussed include:

• Why firms locate R&D activities abroad
• Data availability, quality and comparability
• The role of the EU and the US in the internationalisation of R&D
• Country-level factors such as size, workforce and FDI as determinants of R&D internationalisation
• Impacts of R&D internationalisation on home and host countries.

This book will prove an insightful read for academics, researchers and students with an interest in economics – particularly the economics of innovation – business and management, and science and technology. It will also prove a valuable resource for R&D policymakers and public administrators.
Critical Acclaim
‘The Internationalization of Business R&D is a welcome addition to the volumes which deconstruct how R&D and innovative activities are driven by country-specific, firm-specific and region-specific flows of human resources, investment and collaborations. It is a vivid exhibition with country/region-specific data and references to regulations, along with abundant literature cited at the end of each chapter. . . I think this is the welcome step to start a new direction of understanding R&D internationalization.’
