9781843761099: Science and Innovation: Rethinking the Rationales for Funding and Governance (New Horizons in the Economics of Innovation Series)

Combining traditional public good views of science with newer ideas about its network structure, 11 papers presented by Geuna, Salter, and Steinmueller (all affiliated with Science and Technology Policy Research, U. of Sussex, UK) discuss issues arising from the way science is funded and governed. The governmental policy environment is explored in relation to universities and the interdisciplinarity of research. Empirical investigations examine the changing relationships between different societal actors. The final few chapters develop a theory of science as a distributed knowledge system and discuss the theory's implications. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Review:

`. . . the editors have also invested in a conclusion. It is really worthwhile to read it, as it summarises in a condensed and clear way what we may draw from all the different contributions to the book. . . The book offers interesting contributions. . .' -- Dietmar Braun, Science and Public Policy `This edited volume brings together an international set of the best scholars working in the area of science and technology policy. . . this is an interesting and useful collection. Each section concludes with an integrative and insightful commentary which ties the sections together and offers useful perspectives. . . The editors have done a useful job of solving the problem that plagues many edited volumes - introductory sections create a narrative and the sections and chapters are well integrated.' -- Maryann P. Feldman, Journal of Economic Literature

Book Description Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book re-examines the rationale for public policy, concluding that the prevailing `public knowledge model is evolving towards a networked or distributed model of knowledge production and use in which public and private institutions play complementary roles. It provides a set of tools and models to assess the impact of the new network model of funding and governance, and argues that governments need to adapt their funding and administrative priorities and procedures to support the emergence and healthy growth of research networks. The book goes on to explain that interdependencies and complementarities in the production and distribution of knowledge require a new and more contextual, flexible and complex approach to government funding, monitoring and assessment. The chapters in this book issue a series of challenges to the next generation of science and technology policy. The need for new systems of governance in science and innovation make a single, all encompassing rationale for public funding unnecessary and irrelevant. The new policy questions that matter concern the means and mechanisms for intervention - the use of policy to harness, support and expand the interaction and dynamism of research networks composed of public and private actors.
