Global knowledge creation - Exploring dimensions of proximity
2007 (English)In: ISMOT'07: Proceedings of the Fifth International Symposium on Management of Technology, Vols 1 and 2: Managing Total Innovation And Open Innovation In The 21st Century / [ed] Chen, J; Xu, QR; Wu, XB, 2007, 48-52 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The aim of this paper is to explore the connection between proximity and knowledge creation. As firms are acting in an increasingly distributed fashion, the understanding and analysis of complex knowledge creation cannot be restricted primarily to geographically close relations. Instead, in line with current theories on the actual spatiality of innovation and learning, it is suggested that an alternative view on proximity - relational proximity - better captures knowledge creation in transnational firms.
