regstdpy C., Heraud J.-A. and Perry, B. (2007) Multi-level governance, regions and science in France: between competition and equality, Regional Studies 41, 1069-1084. This article examines the relevance of the concept of multi-level governance for understanding changes in science policy in France. It explores the emergence of a pattern of multi-level governance, particularly in relation to arenas for negotiation between national and regional levels. Compromises are made between the principles of competition and equality and there is great diversity across regions in terms of the capacities for developing bottom-up strategies for science-based development. The article highlights the prerequisites for the development of a multi-level polity and emphasizes the continued role that central government retains in the global design of science policy. regstdpy C., Heraud J.-A. et Perry B. (2007) La gouvernance a plusieurs niveaux de la politique de l'science en Angleterre, Regional Studies 41, 1069-1084. Cet article cherche a esquisser les derniers changements de la gouvernance de la politique de science en Angleterre et a evaluer la naissance recente des politiques de science regionales. Sur le plan infra-national, le debut des annees 2000 a ete marque par une importante mobilisation, representation et creation institutionnelle par moyen des conseils pour la science et l'industrie regionaux. Des fonctions de politique complementaires se sont developpees sur les plans national et regional, et on commence a deceler des felures dans le controle de l'Etat, surtout a la lumiere du renforcement du rapport entre la science et le developpement economique. Il s'est fait le jour un systeme minimal de gouvernance a plusieurs niveaux qui embrasse et protege les paradigmes de politique anterieurs. L'importance des derniers developpements infra-nationaux est limitee par les structures de gouvernance, par les cadres pour l'action et par les discours de politique dominants qui se combinent pour contraindre le developpement de strategies en faveur de la croissance regionale et locale basee sur la science.

(2007) Regierungsfuhrung auf mehreren Ebenen, Regionen und Wissenschaft in Frankreich: zwischen Wettbewerb und Gleichheit, Regional Studies 41, 1069-1084. In diesem Artikel untersuchen wir die Relevanz des Konzepts einer Regierungsfuhrung auf mehreren Ebenen fur das Verstandnis der Veranderungen in der Wissenschaftspolitik Frankreichs. Erkundet wird das Auftreten eines Musters der Regierungsfuhrung auf mehreren Ebenen, insbesondere in Bezug auf Arenen fur Verhandlungen zwischen nationalen und regionalen Ebenen. Es werden Kompromisse geschlossen zwischen den Prinzipien des Wettbewerbs und der Gleichheit, und es gibt eine grosse Vielfalt zwischen den Regionen hinsichtlich der Kapazitaten zur Entwicklung von Bottom-up-Strategien fur eine wissenschaftsbasierte Entwicklung. In dem Artikel heben wir die Vorbedingungen zur Entwicklung eines Gemeinwesens auf mehreren Ebenen hervor, und wir betonen die fortgesetzte Rolle, die der Zentralregierung bei der globalen Gestaltung der Wissenschaftspolitik weiterhin zukommt.erry Regierungsfuhrung auf mehreren Ebenen Wissenschaft Regionen Frankreich Wettbewerb Gleichheit regstdpy C., Heraud J.-A. y Perry B.

En este articulo examinamos la importancia del concepto de un gobierno multinivel para entender los cambios de la politica cientifica en Francia. Analizamos la aparicion de un modelo de gobierno multinivel especialmente en lo que respecta a la negociacion entre niveles nacionales y regionales. Los acuerdos se hacen entre los principios de competicion e igualdad y existe un gran diversidad entre las regiones en lo que afecta a la capacidad de desarrollar estrategias de abajo arriba para el desarrollo cientifico. En este articulo destacamos cuales son las condiciones previas para desarrollar una politica de multiniveles y resaltamos el papel continuo que desempena el gobierno central en el diseno global de la politica cientifica.
