Crossing Boundaries has developed, through a programme of staff exchange, a new international & multi-disciplinary research community working in exploring the processes, challenges & implications on innovation performance of knowledge & technology transfer across national boundaries. It has addressed 5 research quesitos:


1. Who are the actors involved in the process of knowledge & technology transfer for the purposes of innovation across national boundaries?


2. What are the processes of knowledge & technology transfer across national boundaries & how do these differ according to the actors involved?


3. How do contextual factors (such as institutional divergence, cultural differences & geographic distance) influence the processes of knowledge & technology transfer across national boundaries?


4. How do organisational factors (such as technological capabilities, & the absorptive capacity of the firm) influence the processes of knowledge & technology transfer across national boundaries?


5. What are the implications for policy & policy transfer for innovation?
