     View Summary

    This study attempts to explore how firms can shape and appropriate specific knowledge contributing to their advantages under the surge of interfirm technology transfer and sharing by the international standardization. Standard technology specifications and relevant essential patents to secure firms' rights on technologies are publicized and broadly exploited. Yet, system knowledge to integrate multiple technologies for implementations and innovations is not the case. For each firm, system knowledge is captured as a knowledge network between specifications and essential patents. Based on the perspective, this study elucidates that while opening their technologies, firms whose essential patents are cited much and who influence technological implementations and innovations shape their appropriated specific system knowledge in a self-reinforcing manner.

  • The Study on the Formation of Business Ecosystems Sheped by Firms' Strategies for the International Standardization

    Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research(B)

    Project Year: 2012.04  -  2015.03  Investigator(s): Masanori Yasumoto

     View Summary

    This study attempts to explore how a variety of players shape business ecosystems based on the international standardization. More specifically, focusing on the fields of mobile telecommunication and automobile electronics, this study examines cases and conducts the data analysis of the participation in R&D and standardization, intelligent property (patent citation and co-patenting), and business transaction. These surveys show that at each stage of R&D, standardization, and implementation, strategic participation and positioning of players according to their backgrounds (e.g., knowledge amounts) encourage the evolution of mutually complementary networks between these players. As such, this study elucidates how ecosystems are shaped with the diffusion of standardized technologies.
