Abstract

“Dual-Use policies” are one response to the challenges faced by defence research establishments and defence producers. This article traces the development of Dual-Use Technology Centres (DUTCs), a UK initiative to exploit the capabilities generated in defence research establishments by providing a channel for technology transfer. We find that a number of persistent tensions are creating problems under the current arrangements and conclude that there should be a clear separation within the research organisation of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), between offices concerned with managing research programmes conducted “extra-murally”, and MoD-owned facilities carrying out research.
