About this book

Introduction

The book uses interview and survey information from 300 of the world's leading industrial enterprises to provide an in-depth investigation of the issues relating to the internationalisation of R & D by multinational enterprises. The viewpoints of central coordinating R & D units and their overseas subsidiaries are analysed. The issues covered include the nature and funding of the work done in overseas facilities; the specialisation of roles in globalised R & D; coordination practices; sources of ideas implemented in R & D programmes and attitudes to government policies.
