Eleanor Westney's long-term research interest is learning across borders (i.e., how organizational patterns developed in one social context are adapted in other societies). She is currently working on the internationalization of R&D, particularly in the context of firms establishing R&D centers in Japan, and Japanese firms setting up R&D facilities offshore.
