The inception of coopetition – generically defined as the simultaneous pursuit of collaboration and competition by firms – has recently attracted a great deal of attention and inspired significant amount of research. In this panel, we wish to advance theory and speculation on the dynamics of the interplay between competition and cooperation. Our goal is to explore the path of various theoretical endeavors that enable the strategic management field to move beyond the simple view of rent generating competition, or increase-in-the-size-of-the-pie cooperation. The developing status of the coopetition concept offers an intriguing opportunity to establish multiple connections across various sub fields including: multi-market competition; competitive dynamics; the nature of markets in industrial districts; the virtual organization as a conundrum of market and non-market forces; and others. We intend to highlight conceptual and empirical issues and propose a continuing research agenda.
