Press/Media: Research


  • How might we understand the changing governance of scientific research at national, regional and supranational levels in Europe?
  • What are the prevailing and conflicting political, economic, cultural and ideational discourses, discursive contexts and rationales for constituting and governing intermediary research executive agencies? How do they operate?
  • What are the consequences/outcomes caused by the tensions and compromises between these supposedly independent agencies and the national governments or regional institutions?
  • What are the implications for research policies and academic practices at higher education institutions?
