Abstract

We develop the conjecture that an R&D subsidiary can embed itself in the science base of the home country

R&D it is mandated to perform, the threat of R&D leakage, strategic considerations of rival firms, and the

on data obtained from 76 R&D subsidiaries in 14 international locations. Both types of external embeddedness

extent of host country embeddedness, but location specific disadvantages, geographical proximity to the parent

and relative autonomy in subsidiary operations favour external embeddedness in the parent country networks.
