By today, 400 out of the Fortune Top 500 have established at least
one research and development (R&D) unit, if not even a global
R&D centre in China. At the moment the total number of foreign
R&D units in China is estimated to total 600 and to grow at a
rate of 30% per year. This phenomenon is all the more surprising if
one considers the fact that in early 2000 there were only 34 foreign
R&D units in China.
The goal of this project is to empirically explore this new, highly relevant yet unresearched phenomenon of foreign R&D in China that seems to contradict existing theory on international R&D.
