Call for Papers: Emerging Economy Multinationals, Innovation and Knowledge Flows

Special Issue on: “Emerging Economy Multinationals, patient Innovation and Knowledge Flows”

Web site:

Guest Editors:

Bersant Hobdari, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
Max von Zedtwitz, Tongji University, Shanghai

Multinational companies from emerging economies (EMNCs) are becoming major players in the globalised world economy and wield growing influence on economic dynamics in developed, emerging and developing countries alike. The foreign presence and operations of EMNCs are becoming increasingly intertwined with innovation and knowledge generation processes both at home and abroad.

While the extant literature tends to build on the assumption that firms internationalise on the basis of innovations carried out at home, EMNCs often engage in international activities with the intent to access technologies they lack or to acquire resources enabling them to strengthen their innovative capabilities.

There are a range of challenges associated with such activities. Identifying, assessing, accessing and absorbing technology and knowledge from abroad is rife with challenges. Compounding these challenges, EMNCs are often engaging asymmetrically with foreign partners much stronger than themselves in a particular technological domain. Vice-versa, relinquishing technology to EMNCs may pose dilemmas to incumbents as well as nations.

At a more aggregate level, innovation-related outward foreign direct investment is contingent upon and in turn influences the broader institutional innovation system in which the investing firm is embedded. For example, competitive dynamics at home may drive firms to seek technology abroad; successful absorption of foreign technology may require an enabling knowledge infrastructure at home; and technologies acquired abroad may in turn spill over into the wider domestic innovation system.

In host economies, innovation-related investments by EMNCs may bring about synergies and infuse local firms with required capital and market access, while at the same time intensifying competition in technological domains. Where high-tech clusters in developed economies are concerned, the nature and impact of EMNC presence remains insufficiently analysed.

This special issue solicits papers related to the broad theme of the relationship between emerging economy multinationals and innovation and knowledge flows, whether perceived at micro, meso or macro level. Conceptual, representative and case-based papers alike are welcomed.

Subject Coverage

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Which roles of outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) are coming to play in the innovation processes of EMNCs, at both strategic and operational levels?
  • Why, how and with which outcomes are EMNCs engaging in innovation-related OFDI?
  • What are the implications for incumbent MNCs in developed countries, e.g. in terms of competitive and collaborative dynamics?
  • How do host governments respond to technology-seeking investments by EMNCs? To which extent do they promote them, and what may be appropriate facilitating frameworks?
  • What are the macroeconomic and institutional contingencies and implications for home economies of innovation-related investments?
  • What are the opportunities and threats for host economies of these investments?

CFP: Building Sustainable Communities

Building Sustainable Communities

The 5th ITU Kaleidoscope academic conference

22–24 April 2013, pill Kyoto, store Japan

Call for Papers

Kaleidoscope 2013 Building Sustainable Communities is the fifth in a series of peer-reviewed academic conferences organized by ITU that brings together a wide range of views from universities, industry and research institutions of different fields. The aim of Kaleidoscope conferences is to identify emerging developments in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) at an early stage to generate successful products and services through the development of international and open standards.

Future technologies should be designed to enhance the quality of human life. Kaleidoscope 2013 will, therefore, highlight multidisciplinary aspects of future ICTs including future services and applications demand as well as socio-economic, cultural, ethical, legal, and sustainable development policy aspects of communities of the future.

ICTs can be used as a catalyst for transforming life to meet the challenges of the new millennium, including global economic and financial crises, high unemployment rates, accessibility issues, global diseases, food availability and distribution, climate change, environmental disasters, energy consumption, transport systems, safety, security, and welfare.

Sustainable communities will combine human-oriented technologies and human values.

Besides technical issues, building sustainable communities also raises ethical concerns such as responsibility for future generations and for the environment, as well as for data and information privacy. Therefore, an improved understanding of technology, its suitable application, and a high consideration of its potential consequences are necessary.

To address these issues, and for a co-evolution of technology and sustainable communities, standards are indispensable. Developing these standards will require concerted global efforts by inter-sectoral stakeholders. This conference will help to further such collaborations.

Call for papers

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, I would like to inform you of the:

University Center
Chicago, Illinois, USA
6-8 July, 2012

We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Twelfth International Conference on Knowledge, Culture, and Change Management. The Management Conference and its companion journal are devoted to those intangible drivers which determine not only the livability of organizations for insiders, and their credibility and attraction to outsiders; but also their tangible results in the form of efficiency, effectiveness and productivity. The intangibles of knowledge, culture and change management do not appear on balance sheets, but ultimately do have an enormous impact on ‘bottom lines’.

We are pleased to host the Management Conference this year at the University Center in Chicago, Illinois. Chicago is the third-largest city in the United States with a rich history of industry, innovation, and culture. It was ranked by Forbes Magazine as the 5th most economically powerful city in the world, and the Chicago Area is the home to twelve Fortune Global 500 companies, including Boeing, Kraft Foods, Motorola, and McDonalds.

In addition to an impressive line-up of international plenary speakers, the conference will also include paper presentations, roundtable discussions, workshops, and colloquia submitted by practitioners, teachers and researchers. Please refer to the Call-for-Papers for proposal submission guidelines and descriptions of sessions. Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of Knowledge, Culture, and Change Management. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available.

Visit our website for more information about the conference, our submission process and this year’s themes, to sign up for our monthly e-newsletter, and to become an active member of our community. It is all available at:
