Kapmeier (2008) focuses his research on common learning and firms’ opportunistic behaviour in learning alliances. A strategic alliance, as clearly stated by Gulati (1998, p. 293) is a voluntary arrangement between firms to exchange and share knowledge as well as resources with the intent of developing processes, products or services. This is a relevant topic not only for those firms that operate in industries characterized typically by high R&D investments, but also for those scholars who are interested in exploring the real causes of success and failure of an alliance.
