Institutional Factors and Subnational Location Choice for Multinationals’ R&D Subsidiaries Outros Idiomas

ID:
61572
Resumo:
Purpose – Using an institution-based view, this study aims to conceptualize how sub-national institutional characteristics are likely to explain location choice ofmultinationals’ research and development (R&D) subsidiaries. Design/methodology/approach – In a conceptual paper, this study explores specific institutional facets of the regional environments within a country that are capable of explaining, at least in part, the location choices of multinational corporations’ R&D subsidiaries. Findings – This study thus explores the more nuanced influences of the institutional environments at a subnational level and develops propositions to explain location choices based on the differences of the institutional environments. Originality/value – This study contributes to international business theory by incorporating a locationspecific analysis that contrasts to the usual country-level observation on the determinants of firms’ location decisions.
