During the past 25 years, there have been extensive changes to the organisation and structure of public sector research (PSR), with convergence between the functions of each sector of PSR. Common trends for managing research include the demand that PSR support industrial innovation, but the unintended side effects of policies may in fact damage innovation. A review of various theories to explain the transformation of PSR and its impacts suggests we are witnessing part of a continuing pattern of adaptation that is aided by European diversity and policy flexibility.

Item Type: Article
Additional Information: This paper draws together findings from the EUPSR project, investigating the changes in public-sector research across 12 European countries over the previous 25 years. The logic of such adaptation is shown through applying a long-wave perspective.
