Global Value Chains Mapping: Methodology and Cases for Policymakers: Thematic Work on Value Chain Mapping in the Context of Smart Specialisation

This paper is part of a series on Global Value Chains (GVCs), which are developed with the support of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission (EC). Todeva and Rakhmatullin’s (2016) paper builds upon the first two papers regarding the theoretical discussion and provides a new method to map GVCs by using an altered dataset of the innovative biopharma MNEs. This work uses the example of the global biopharma value chain and explains the systematic approach for mapping interconnected international capabilities, the concentration of biopharma capabilities in Europe, and additionally, two examples of regional and national specialisation.

The discussed method consists of two different methods, such as, one for top-down global value chain mapping of an established industry sector and one for a bottom-up mapping of capabilities in the GVC. Both can be applied to evolve sectors and segments which are driven by main enabling technologies.

Two cases

This work also provides two cases (Bulgaria and the Greater South of East of England in the UK) that applied this method at the regional and nation level. The new methods for information collection and visualisation show the connections among segments of the biopharmaceutical GVC and the position of companies at the cross-section of biotechnology discovery and pharmaceutical drug development and manufacturing actions controlling a network via a subsidiary empire around the world.
