It then reviews current realities and identifies emergent trends of multinational enterprise innovation to outline avenues for future research. It puts forward the need for further exploration of issues, such as emerging markets as an innovation context and emerging multinationals’ knowledge creation approaches, as well as the particularities of structuring for open innovation and capabilities for global knowledge sharing.
