Regional linkages through European research funding
We use cluster analysis to describe the regional linkages that arise through funding of research contract networks in the EU. We find five significantly different kinds of networks, that we label: 1) Technological development, 2) Basic research, 3) Quasi-elite, 4) Elite and 5) Southern. These networks are described in terms of three basic dimensions: quality, type of partners, and size combined with cost of the project. We find that the networks are homogeneously formed and that regions of similar technological capabilities are linked together. We then discuss related issues of European technology policy.
