While most of the literature on global innovation networks has focused on the internationalization of R&D by multinational companies and their interactions with local firms in host locations,
this seminar will discuss how universities participate in the development global innovation network. First, It is important to consider how multination companies
collaborate in innovation with local universities in the countries where they offshore their R&D activities. Moreover, universities themselves are also increasingly locating new
R&D centres overseas and several counties have launched new policy programs to develop research centres of excellence through the attraction of foreign universities and public research institutes.
This seminar will focus on discussing the implications of these trends for universities and for public policies.
