International investment in R&D centers in Europe from 2002 to 2006
The internationalization of the corporate R & D – an activity up to now very concentrated in the home country of the firms – involves, among other modalities, the direct establishment of R & D centres abroad. Few analyses were however carried out up to now on corresponding flows of international investment. The exploitation of the AFII data bases can contribute to fill this gap, at least in the case of Europe. This is the object of this article, which proposes a detailed analysis, by country of origin, country of destination and industry, of the 135 international projects in R & D centres announced on average each year on the old continent between 2002 and 2005.
