Organization of R&D cooperation of firms

Adam Karbowski

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper focuses on the organization of R&D cooperation of firms. With respect to market relations between cooperating entities one can distinguish horizontal, vertical as well as institutional R&D cooperation of firms. With respect to organizational mode of cooperation one can distinguish R&D contracts, license agreements, non-controlling investments, joint R&D as well as research joint ventures (RJVs). All listed above forms of R&D cooperation were briefly characterized in this work. In further part of the paper the problem of organization of R&D cooperation of firms was elaborated in the light of managerial economics and new institutional economics. The institutional – managerial strand of literature perceives the organization of interfirm cooperation as a central issue. This strand of literature allows to perceive interfirm R&D cooperation as heterarchy, for which trust is a key mechanism of coordination. In this context the game-theoretic concept of trust (proposed first by Cabral, 2005) applicable to the analysis of firms’ relations and behavior within the network was presented.
