- For the pharmaceutical industry, where the acquisition of external knowledge is very important in knowledge creation, this study investigated the moderating effect of the utilization of licensing, a unilateral relationship, on the knowledge creation of R&D co-development, a bilateral relationship. The results showed that pharmaceutical firms that properly utilize external knowledge through licensing contracts had larger knowledge creation compared to firms that only utilize R&D co-development with large organizational learning effects and risks. The study was carried out using licensing contracts, R&D co-development, and the data of new FDA-approved medicines targeting the top 100 global pharmaceutical companies for the past 20 years (1995 to 2015). Licensing contracts showed slightly significant moderating effects in the correlation of R&D co-development and knowledge creation
