Abstract [en]

Knowledge-based theories of the firm have inspired a rich literature on the search, transfer and integration of knowledge in advanced economies. This paper builds on theories on boundaries and knowledge integration to analyze an important new subject: firms in emerging economies and their strategies for acquiring and integrating external knowledge and break with their past as local low-cost manufacturers. Studies within this area, we propose, may also provide fresh perspectives on the general discourse on knowledge integration across boundaries.  We start with the empirical context, emerging economies and technological catch-up, with a focus on Turkey. Then we present case studies of firm strategies to overcome external knowledge boundaries, adopted by two of Turkey´s industry leaders. These strategies are analyzed using Carlile´s (2004) framework on knowledge boundaries. We conclude by briefly reviewing the difficulties faced by the studied firms, and what these difficulties may tell us about different types of boundaries.
