Abstract

Based on general theoretical analyses of the integration of scientific and technological resources and polarization effect, we proposed a research model to explore the relationship between the integration of scientific and technological resources, polarization effect, and enterprise's innovation ability in emerging economies, specifically using the data from Chinese enterprises. We empirically found that polarization effect can be used as the intermediary variables between the integration of scientific and technological resources and enterprises’ innovation ability. The results provided important insights to enterprises in emerging economies about utilizing the polarization effect of the integration of scientific and technological resources to improve innovation capability.
