    Project Details


    The overall aim of the DOMUS project is to study the role of large domestic multinationals (domus) in the national innovation system (NIS). By domus is meant firms with business units or firms in other countries but with headquarters in the relevant Nordic country.
    Domus play an important role as competence nodes and gravitation centres, and are of great importance for the innovative capabilities of customers and suppliers including SMEs and for competence development in knowledge institutions including cooperating institutes and universities.
    The aim is to map the effects such companies have on the overall capabilities of NIS.
    The project will also investigate the effects a multinational presence has on the home activities of domus.It is for example important to find out the key factors that influence the domus'localisation decision of headquarter functions and other associated activities in the Nordic countries, and to what extent national ownership is of importance.
