New Forms of Governance in Research Organizations. Disciplinary Approaches, Interfaces and Integration

  • <b>Abstract</b> Higher education and researach institutions are confronted with changing and sometimes contradictory claims from state, industry and society, today. They have to face growing volatility and an acceleration and internationalization of the konowledge process. This book undertakes to develop a sector specific theory of governance of the public research sector and applies it to the German research system. The book is the outcome of a large interdisciplinary project. It analyzes the reforms in the German research system from a integrated perspective of law, ecconomics and social sciences. The case of Germany is compared to reforms in other European countries such as Austria, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The study emphasizes an integrated approach considering the researchi function of universities as well as the non-university research sector. The focus is on the integration of external and internal governance. First, we pose the question how external competition and control mechanisms do influence internal governance of research institutions and universities and vice versa. Second, we discuss the consequences of these impacts on research. The book addresses scholars in the field of science and technology studies and research policy as well as actors responsible for establishing and implementing research policies. Managers of research institutions will find insights and guidelines for the strategic positioning of their institutions in a rapidly changing environment. Researachers in the field of governance may profit from the approaches to governance which are applied to the German research system in comparison to other research systems. Written for: Practitioners and scholars in Higher Education Studies, Management of Higher Education, Researach and Innovation Management, Science and Technology Studies, Science and Technology Policy, Governance and Governance Theory, New Public Management.
