|Abstract:||This research analyses, with a comparative approach, the production of knowledge in two pairs of analogous large European companies: two German companies from the Chemicals sector (Bayer and BASF) and two Swiss companies from the pharmaceuticals sector (Novartis and Roche).; The results show that, within each of these two pairs, the firms, which display several similar main characteristics (same home country, same industrial sectors, annual sales and R&D investment of the same order of magnitude), differ significantly in the way they produce knowledge. Modalities of knowledge exploitation (assessed through the patents applied for by these companies) are alike, but new knowledge (assessed through the scientific publications authored by researchers from these companies) is being explored rather differently within the two pairs of analogous companies.|
