Abstract

To address the gap between international financing and the promotion of local capabilities for Science, Technology and Innovation this study focuses on key governance dimensions of international cooperation in ST&I. Governance activities and processes including voting power in decision making processes, project selection and evaluation, research themes, regional focus and investment types are examined to enable an understanding of the link between governance structures and outcomes that are favourable to the development of local capabilities. The paper pools information and initiates analysis on global governance and international cooperation in ST&I. In so doing it attempts to bridge the gap between research on innovation systems and governance of access to and dissemination of knowledge, so far mostly executed in an ad hoc fashion or within uni-disciplinary frameworks.
