Internationalization of Public Research Organizations. Context, Strategies and Effects
MetadataShow full item record
This paper analyses (1) the context conditions of PRO and their roles in the (national) innovation systems, (2) the internationalisation strategies and (3) the effects of international activities on the performance and roles of PROs, whereby effects occur on the level of the organisations and on system's level. The paper thus contributes to the literature on the role of public research in the growing internationalisation of science and innovation. It also, more fundamentally, discusses the changes in the roles and functions of PROs more generally through internationalization. THe databasis is a large scale, comprehensive survey on German PROs and a set of case studies.
