R&D location in dynamic industry environments

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista


We study firms' optimal R&D location strategies in a dynamic industry model with competition in product quality. In light of potential future inwards and outwards spillovers firms make their location choices relying on heuristic strategies that are based on the expected present values associated with alternative location patterns. Using a simulation analysis, we show how the strategies of innovators and imitators differ and how they depend on whether firms operate in strongly or weakly innovative industry environments. We also characterize how firms' location choices should account for the innovativeness of the competitors active in a location.
