Abstract

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.
