Research Setting: Biotechnology Firms in Germany
Industries differ in regard to their structure, the role and dynamics of the science base, the meaning and locus of R&D, invention and innovation activities, the importance of the local industrial and scientific base compared to global knowledge value chains and so forth (e.g., Carlsson & Stankiewicz, 1991; Pavitt, 1984). Accordingly, they also differ in regard to the firms ' strategies toward inter-organisational co-operation in R&D, the benefits they expect from it, the reach of their partner networks and the respective challenges associated with inter-organisational cooperation.
