Abstract [en]

Knowledge is one of the main assets for corporations as it provides competitive advantage over the rivals. On the other hand, owning the knowledge is not enough and companies need to distribute their cutting-edge technology or meth-odology through all their production units in order to keep the distance with their competitors. However it still being a relatively unexplored field because most of scholars and studies have traditionally focused on the tangible flows within the companies rather than the intangible knowledge flows.This project is aimed to provide an overview of knowledge itself, what is it, how many types there are and what the differences between them are and then build a framework for the knowledge transference in the international corporations’ net-work. The second goal is to apply this theoretical framework and link the knowledge transference network with economic aspects of the corporation’s per-formance.
