Abstract [en]

This paper examines longitudional patterns in the diffusion of technological capabilities in the MNC. More specifically, it empirically investigates the diffusion of technological capabilities from advanced foreign subsidiaries to headquarters and sister subsidiaries, at the same time incorporating the effects of inter-subsidiary differentation. The complete U.S. patenting activity by 23 Swedish multinationals over the 1893-1990 period reveals a significant difference in the diffusion patterns between greenfield and acquired advanced foreign subsidiaries. This suggests that in, the previous literature, the difference has been overlooked and the question how the choice of entry mode influences diffusion patterns of technological capabilities within MNCs has been underestimated as well as the different roles of greenfield and acquired advanced foreign subsidiaries as providers of technological capabilities to headquarters and other subsidiaries in the multinational group.
