The role of transnational value chains in regional innovation. Analysis of Central and Eastern European regions engaged in automotive and electronics production networks
Cristian Gangaliuc, 2022

Opis: The thesis touches on important concepts of innovation and regional development. Their empirical relevance for economic and social growth is a subject of active debate. Studies revealed that interactions have a major impact, de facto, on the capacity to innovate. Diversifying knowledge sources, joint ventures and co-creational practices can explain much of the locational factors and innovation in a-spatial networks. With the rise of globalisation, scholars found that Multinational Corporations and their global production chains are integrating more and more into regions worldwide. They share practices and engage local stakeholders in their innovation projects. This research aims to explore the importance of locational and global factors in this process. The goal is to see how these two forces contribute to innovation separately and when intertwined regionally, closing the gap between regional and global innovation frameworks. The thesis contributes to science by developing a new synthesis model based on mainstream Innovation theories. It includes the endogenous and exogenous forces that create environmental pressures and opportunities, pushing economic agents to innovate. The central aspect of this model is the acknowledgement of the multiscalar nature of innovation. Local institutions, mindsets and influence from the production chains create conditions and pressures in the network, which motivates companies to innovate. Depending on the local competencies and the needs of production networks, it creates various environments for companies. It is up to enterprises to use created opportunities, which can be local, national or global. Data collected in eight (distinct) regions in Central and Eastern Europe (active in automotive and electronics industries) was used in qualitative and logical analysis to observe patterns in regional behaviour. The results revealed that endogenous and exogenous forces act circumstantially in each region, partially proving all the hypotheses on endogenous and exogenous factors and validating the model. Each region displays different rates of local and regional engagement and, thus, different patterns of innovation, determining their competitive potential. The research also revealed additional factors (e.g., the importance of trust, particularities of information diffusion, etc.) relevant to innovation in Central and Eastern Europe.
