This research examines the impact of coopetition (i.e., competitor alliances) on the development of internal R&D human capital. The study was conducted using survey data from 111 biotech firms in Spain and United States. Results show a mediation relationship: coopetition increases a firm’s internal R&D human capital via its proactiveness to pursue...
Building on the open innovation and cluster literature, our research describes how innovation policies contribute to the development of open innovation dynamics in biotech clusters. Particularly, we address the role and impact of cluster agency by adopting a contextualized perspective. We carry out comparative case studies of the main five Spanish...
Alliances are increasingly considered a key element for innovation, especially in knowledge-intensive firms. While this is true, the mere membership to alliances does not explain innovation performance, and thus the alliance's characteristics that determine high performance must be examined. This research address the question of how the diversity o...
In our project we try to develop an explanatory model of alliances for innovation in knowledge-based firms. In this model the joint effect of alliances characteristics and portfolios, and alliances management capabilities on innovation performance is analyzed. Similarly, the impact of these collaborations on firms operating in traditional industries, not considered as knowledge-based industries, is also analyzed (cross-industry innovation). The interaction between all these variables rather than the individual effect of each variable in isolation, can determine the achievement of the objectives of innovation and the resulting type of innovation. Finally, this explanatory model is completed with the analysis of region variables outside the firm itself and its portfolio of alliances that could favor or inhibit the knowledge transfer and therefore influence the results of innovation.
