Enterprises engaging in collaboration with competitors can increase their technological diversity and release a new product innovation,but also full of challenges. This complexity of co-opetition relationship requirements academia and enterprises to clarify the problem of competitive technology alliance risk formation mechanism,making the risk control to dispose. Based on the perspective of resources and capabilities,this paper firstly puts forward the double helix model of alliances' evolution on resources and capabilities; then,with the deepening of the cooperation,this evolutionary process leads to different innovation risk: opportunism,R and D integration risk and flexible loss risk; next,analyzing the corresponding management path and constructing the conceptual framework of risk management mechanism to help enterprise using the co-opetition relationship to reduce risk and improve the potential competitive advantage.
Key words:    resource and capability perspective    innovation risk    generation mechanism    the competitive technology alliance
