  • 1.  CFP - Special Issue @ GSJ: Global Innovation in an Era of Disruptive Changes

    Posted 24 days ago

    The magnitude and breadth of two unprecedented disruptions across the globe are significantly affecting the innovation activities and strategies of multinational enterprises (MNEs): (1) the advent of digital innovations such as blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, cloud and quantum computing, and the internet of things (IoT), and (2) the growing geopolitical tensions between major economies that are redefining the international competitive landscape. These disruptions are affecting how MNEs create and appropriate value from their innovation activities.

    The purpose of this special issue is to shed light on disruptive technological and geopolitical changes that require MNEs to reassess the organization of innovation in the global context and its interaction with their strategies. We seek papers that examine the role of the context and contextual characteristics on the behavior of MNEs engaging in R&D, technological, and business model innovation in order to manage new dynamics and stay competitive in the face of disruptive changes

    The full call for paper for the special issue is now available here. Feel free to email any of the special issue editors if you have any questions.
