Author: Singh, Jasjit INSEAD Area: Strategy Series: Working Paper ; 2007/19/ST Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 2007.Language: EnglishDescription: 51 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: We use patent citation data to examine knowledge flows between foreign MNCs and host country organizations in 30 countries. We find not just significant knowledge inflows from foreign MNCs to host country organizations, but also significant outflows back from the host country to foreign MNCs. In fact, in technologically advanced countries, knowledge outflows to foreign MNCs greatly outweigh knowledge inflows. Even in technologically less advanced countries, knowledge outflows are only slightly weaker than inflows. Additional analysis shows that the exact pattern varies across sectors within a country, depending on the country's expertise in individual sectors. Finally, knowledge inflows and outflows appear to track personnel flows between foreign MNCs and host country organizations.
