International Partnership as a Tool to R&D Achievements Other Languages

ID:
36972
Abstract:
Global competition emerges with greater need for faster innovations. R&D plays an essential role on the elaboration of new products and processes in even shorter period of time. As the access to resources and knowledge inside the own country borders are restrict, companies start to go abroad looking for other options of R&D. This way, international R&D partnerships arise as an important theme of discussion in literature and in practice. Through a systematic literature review of 31 papers published in management journals from 2002 to 2014, this study brings first a description of the main concepts in international R&D partnerships, then the best practices for the theme proposed and the gaps in the area’s knowledge. As an outcome, this paper aims to contribute to both practitioners and literature by providing a research agenda with seven themes for future research, regarding in-depth studies, secondary data analysis, measure proposal and practical development.
