Article
Full-text available
Technology development is increasingly important for creating efficient and sustainable economies. Policy-makers have encouraged the co-location of technology-based firms that could lead to innovation benefits. One of the innovation policies are science parks, area developments where technology-based firms, universities and research institutes co-l...
Article
Full-text available
Science parks as knowledge-intensive area developments aim to enhance networking, and innovative and economic performances of firms and regions. This paper seeks to explore the perceived benefits (i.e. types of performance indicators) that science park firms associate with specific science park attributes. Association data between twenty science pa...
Article
Full-text available
Science parks as area developments have existed for decades and captivated the attention of academia and policy-makers for their potential impact on firms and regions. Only limited attention is given to the needs of science park firms regarding what science parks offer. Therefore, this study focused on science park facilities and services and how f...
Article
Although science parks are established globally for decades as an innovation policy instrument to foster growth and networking, there is limited attention given towards research into possible types within these real estate objects. Prior attempts in categorising science parks are characterised by the limited number of cases and/or variables. Scienc...

Technical Report
Full-text available
Technology-driven companies, local governments, research institutes and universities are looking increasingly for opportunities to collaborate in so-called innovation ecosystems to fuel economic growth, international competitiveness, and social well-being. The Brainport-Eindhoven region in the Netherlands is a prime example of a well-functioning in...
Article
Although central network positions have been associated with above average performance effects, an important void that still remains is how firms come to occupy a more central position in the first place. Whereas recently made exogenous explanations have shed some more light on aggregate changes in centrality, they remain silent on an endogenous un...
Article
This article considers the evolution of interfirm networks within a context of technological change. More specifically, it studies the evolution of structural and positional embeddedness in a network of technology-based alliances when it moves from an early period of invention creation to a subsequent period of new product development and commercia...
Article
In this paper we aim to understand the internationalisation strategies of companies from India and China. In particular we focus on two external organisational modes: mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and strategic technology alliances. Using a large longitudinal data set we show that Greater China and India are emerging as important players in world...
Chapter
Full-text available
14.1 INTRODUCTION The concept of open innovation primarily stems from observing changing innovation management practices in companies (Chesbrough, 2003a, 2006a). This practice-based approach explains to some extent why open innovation research has not been grounded systematically in prior management research. The failure to connect the phenomenon o...
Article
Using Ajzen’s theory of planned behavior and Shapero’s entrepreneurial event model as well as entrepreneurial cognition theory, we attempt to identify the relationship between entrepreneurship education, prior entrepreneurial exposure, perceived desirability and feasibility, and entrepreneurial intentions (EI) for university students. The data were...
Article
Full-text available
Corporate venturing has become a well-known approach toward new business development and strategic renewal for established technology firms. However, without an effectively designed process for aligning and integrating a corporate venture in the established business, the firm increases the risk of venture failure. This paper provides a process pers...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose – Acquiring knowledge‐intensive firms in order to gain access to their knowledge to innovate is not a strategy to achieve easily. Knowledge acquisitions demand that organizations integrate various dispersed knowledge‐based resources and thus share knowledge to innovate. However, despite the growing number of knowledge acquisitions an unders...
Article
Full-text available
A growing number of research and development‐driven companies are located in knowledge‐based ecosystems. Value creation by these ecosystems draws on the dynamics of single firms (interacting and partnering) as well as the ecosystem at large. Drawing on a field study of a Dutch high‐tech campus, two key sources of value creation are identified: (1)...
Article
This paper presents an analysis of some major historical trends in inter-firm R&D partnering in the international software industry during the period 1970-1999. Our research demonstrates an overall growth pattern of newly made R&D partnerships and reveals the important role played by leading firms. We also examine the emergence of various R&D netwo...
Article
Full-text available
Open innovation provides a general view how firms can benefit from external sources of knowledge. Absorptive capacity is crucial in explaining why some companies are much better than others in creating and capturing value from in-sourcing externally developed technology and from collaboration with innovation partners. Absorptive capacity and the ou...

Among her research interests are innovation, alliances, and networks, and she has published articles on these topics in Research Policy and the British Journal of Management.
Article
This study examines the post-M&A innovative performance of acquiring firms in four major high-tech sectors. Non-technological M&As appear to have a negative impact on the acquiring firm's post-M&A innovative performance. With respect to technological M&As, a large relative size of the acquired knowledge base reduces the innovative performance of th...
Article
The innovative performance of companies has been studied quite extensively and for a long period of time. However, the results of many studies have not yet led to a generally accepted indicator of innovative performance or a common set of indicators. So far the variety in terms of constructs, measurements, samples, industries and countries has been...
Article
Did living standards stagnate before the Industrial Revolution? Traditional real-wage indices typically show broadly constant living standards before 1800. In this paper, we show that living standards rose substantially, but surreptitiously because of the growing availability of new goods. Colonial luxuries such as tea, coffee, and sugar transforme...
Article
Full-text available
The dominant focus in the literature until now has been on how networks enable and constrain action, whereas the question what factors enable and constrain networks has been largely ignored. To fill this void, this paper aims to develop an understanding of the role of ex ante factors and processes that influence network evolution. Empirically, we s...

Article
Full-text available
In this paper we explore a special case of venturing, namely the spinout approach. More in particular, this paper has sought to model the spin-out process by combining scholarly literature with an empirical analysis of the spinout process of Royal Dutch Shell. Through literature review we have identified multiple factors relevant for spinout succes...
