Effect of domestic and foreign technological collaborations on different level of product innovation radicalness
Based on a sample of 1,684 manufacturing companies from the Taiwanese Technological Innovation Survey for the period from 2004-2006, the paper examines the relationship between different types of domestic and foreign based collaborative partners and different levels of product innovation radicalness. A complex network of relationships emerges where the level of innovation radicalness is associated with the type and geographic location of partners. A firm that aims to develop radical innovations should consider collaborating with domestic universities and competitors but also with customers in foreign countries.
