Multinational corporations (MNCs) have increasingly located research and development (R&D) activities in developing countries such as China and India since the 1990s.? While governments in developing countries are eagerly attracting foreign R&D to their local economies, developed countries are concerned about losing their competitive advantage due to R&D offshoring.? Given the weak Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) regimes in developing countries, intellectual property protection has emerged as a major concern.
Dr. Quan will address the following questions: What exactly do MNC R&D labs do in China?? Why do they invest in such R&D activities?? How do they protect their intellectual property rights there?? How do the MNC R&D labs interact with the local innovation systems?
In summary, she will briefly discuss a comparison of the emerging MNCs from China.? Dr. QuanĂ¢??s formal research addresses these issues.
