Abstract : What determines the regional embeddedness of Multinational Enterprises MNEs and how do these globally operating firms harness external knowledge which is considered to be -out there- in Regional Innovation Systems RIS? Despite the increasing importance of this matter, both from a research and management perspective, there is still an insufficient understanding of the regional embeddedness of MNEs. By integrating insights from studies on intangible assets, corporate organization of innovation and RIS, this exploratory case study analysis presents a novel matrix of MNE regional embeddedness, using qualitative evidence from 56 in-depth interviews with senior members of leading MNEs from the ICT, automotive and pharmaceutical industries from highly developed RIS in Germany and the UK.
