    Abstract Taking a multi-disciplinary approach, this paper highlights the importance of taking into account the role of non-domestic elements in an innovation system, which is traditionally studied by using the nation-state as the unit of analysis. Learning and knowledge accumulation is often assisted by inward and outward FDI, although this is sometimes overlooked in the study of innovation systems. Multi-level, multi-country interactions within a modern knowledge based economy means that firms are not always constrained by the limitations of their domestic resources. Nonetheless, there are factors that constrain and pre-determine the extent to which firms and locations can benefit from external knowledge sources, be they domestic or foreign.
