with Aija Leiponen: w18179
We empirically examine the effects of industry consortia on the coordination of innovation strategies of the members. Our analyses utilize membership data from 32 consortia in wireless telecommunication technology subfields from 2000 to 2005 and prior art citations in standards-essential patents. We find that connections among firms in informal technically-oriented consortia significantly increase the likelihood that firms cite each other's patents in subsequent patents essential for the UMTS wireless telecommunication standard. Inventions that are likely to become part of the UMTS telecommunication system tend to build on inventions by firm peers who were members in the same consortia, controlling for patent or firm fixed effects, technology class, and other characteristics. Consortia may...
