Regional Technology Trajectories and European Research and Technology Development Policies

  • Michel Quevit


During the 1980s, the European Community has launched a series of extensive programmes in Research and Technology Development (ESPRIT, RACE, BRITE, STAR, etc.). It is already evident, from the magnitude of the budgetary allocations made to these programmes that a movement favouring the creation of a new European-wide space in science and technology is emerging. The creation of a vast, unified interior market, through the application of the Single European Act in 1992, will inevitably reinforce intra-European technological exchange. Therefore, the spatial distribution of science and technology activities is a current and primary concern of regional science.
