Chapter 6 in Internationalisation Theory and Technological Accumulation, 2012, pp 93-147 from Palgrave Macmillan
Abstract In this chapter we set out to investigate the extent of and motive for R&D and innovation undertaken by foreign and West German multinational affiliates based in East Germany. We test whether existing technology and other agglomeration related spillover potentials impact on the location choice of MNEs for R&D and innovation. More specifically, we are interested in possible interaction effects of location bound potentials for knowledge spillover and other agglomeration related externalities on the choice of MNEs. we also inquire as to whether locational factors differ significantly depending upon the underlying motive for the internationalisation of technological activities by MNEs.
