This study aims to examine how born globals establish, participate in and manage their global value chains (GVCs) and how existing support for internationalising SMEs, and particularly born globals, could be improved. More specifically, the research seeks to identify the born globals? motivation and challenges in engaging in internationalisation, and how international cooperation affects their performance. At the same time, the report analyses policies across European and non-European countries to examine the extent to which previous action has addressed the needs of internationalising SMEs/born globals and to offer policy pointers. The study was carried out in the period 2016?2018 as part of the Future of Manufacturing in Europe pilot project proposed by the European Parliament and delegated to Eurofound by the European Commission (DG GROW). The research involves the investigation of seven born globals? value chains and 28 policy measures across 16 countries in Europe and beyond.
