Abstract

This chapter examines the emergence of a new science based programme supported by one of the new UK regional development agencies. The North East England case is one of the most ambitious, involving a series of centres of excellence drawing upon university expertise, a Science and Industry Council, and exploitation strategies. These regional initiatives seek to develop the basic science infrastructure alongside the development of innovation strategies, and so offer direct challenges to previous national policies of concentrating scientific excellence.
