Abstrakt

This paper investigates the locational determinants behind the globalization of R&D in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. The study shows that host-country characteristics previously identified as important for location attractiveness in general play an important role in attracting R&D-related investments. Moreover, the investment motive (i.e., market seeking, strategic asset seeking, or efficiency seeking) moderates the link between R&D investment-location decisions and host-country characteristics. The findings support contingency approaches arguing for a “fit” between strategy and location. Our study contributes with a fine grained analysis of the interrelationship between firm and location level factors in the new geography of innovation.
