Abstract [en]

International coopetition has rarely been studied in relation to innovation, and further exploration of the international coopetition effects on firm´s innovation performance is especially important as such relationships are challenging with a high propensity to fail. This observation formed the departure point for this study, which aims to increase the understanding of the effects of international coopetition on firm innovativeness and how these effects are conditioned on the magnitude of the organizational adjustments a firm introduces. Using an unbalanced panel of firms that partook in the four waves of the Swedish Community Innovation Survey between 2008 and 2014, micro-matched with firm register and firm-specific employee data for the same time period, we find that firms cooperating with competitors internationally indeed exhibit a higher propensity to introduce new-to-market innovations. We further find that translating a broader scope of international partnerships into innovation introduction depends upon the magnitude of organizational changes a firm has to undergo through in conjunction with innovation development. Overall, our study contributes to the understanding of the implications of the international coopetition and what a firms needs to benefit from such coopetition.
