‘Innovation in Multinational Corporations in the Information Age is highly recommended for any professional interested in the role of information technology in multinational corporations. Although most of the analysis in this book is focused on Europe, the findings can be easily extrapolated to other regions of the world. The highly structured analysis of empirical data sets this book apart from others in this topic.’ – Roberto Vinaja, Journal of Global Information Technology Management (JGITM) ‘This book deals with issues that will be of particular interest to those who wish to learn about the location of corporate R&D. In line with earlier studies on international business, this book concludes that although ICTs encourage the geographical dispersion of R&D activities, the location of these is not in fact random. On the contrary, the book shows that the location patterns of multinational corporations reflect regional technological advantages and are affected by agglomeration economies. The collection of data presented in this work bears several implications for the management of multinational corporations and public policy.’ – Salvatore Torrisi, Università di Camerino and St Anna School of Advanced Studies, Pisa, Italy Innovation in Multinational Corporations in the Information Age investigates the production of information communication technology (ICT) through multinational corporations worldwide, and particularly in Europe.
