Abstract: Differences in innovative strategies between groups of domestic and multinational enterprises are analyzed within a two stage game model, that incorporates the asymmetries in transaction costs between the two species of enterprises. Nash and cooperative behaviour is shown to result in different equilibrium R&D strategies, with the multinational companies doing typically more R&D for larger markets and domestic companies focusing on specific market segments. Survey data from companies operating in eleven high-tech multinational industries in Belgium provide support for these strategic differences and show how they are related to company performance.
