R&D Centres of Information and Communication Technology Multinationals in India

Executing Arms or Equal Partners?

Based on a triangulation of methods, this paper attempts to capture the nature of research and development centres of information and communication technology multinational enterprises in India, and their linkages with the local science and technology system. The findings indicate that the R&D landscape is equally divided into centre-for-globals, executing arms of the global headquarters, and local-for-globals, equal partners in technological collaborations. The linkage between R&D centres and local actors appears to be weak. The knowledge spillovers are enabled by the circulation of labour pool in the industry. Based on this study, the paper offers some policy suggestions.
