This seminar will review the results of a multi-year research project led by Edmund Amann (Manchester) and John Cantwell (Rutgers) which examined the ways in which select firms operating in emerging markets have built up significant technological capability. As well as discussing the conceptual framework and methods employed, the discussion will also centre on relevant policy lessons as well as the scope for potential future research. The experiences of enterprises located in China, India, Brazil, South Korea - among other countries - will be reviewed.
Ed Amann completed his PhD. at Manchester in 1996. He then moved to St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford. In September 2000 Ed moved back to Manchester where he is now Reader in Development Economics.

In addition to his position at Manchester, Ed is Visiting Professorial Lecturer at The Paul H.

Due to preparation work for the MBS redevelopment project, access to the Harold Hankins building is no longer possible via the University Precinct Centre. Please use the main entrance of MBS West (Building Number 29 on the Campus Map) and take the lifts to the left of the main reception desk to the 6th floor. Turn left (‘access to Harold Hankins’ is signed) and go through the door at the end of the corridor and left through a second door into the stairwell. Go down a half flight of stairs following the sign ‘access to Harold Hankins’ and through the door into the Harold Hankins building and along the corridor until you get to the main stairwell/lift lobby. Take the lift to the tenth floor then turn right out of the lift.
Alternatively, if you are a member of the University you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for access to Harold Hankins building from the door on Booth Street West.
