Abstract

This paper is a comparative study of institutional change and efforts to create networks and linkages in the science and technology (SandT) systems of Poland and Tanzania at a time of market-led economic reform. It argues that, in both countries, SandT has been hampered by linear approaches to technology transfer and that future efforts should focus on non-linear approaches involving multiple actors. Discussion focuses on a consideration of organisational goals and agendas, the resource base of different organisations, and fostering organisational capacities to learn, adapt, and change.
