Abstract

This paper constitutes a policy analysis of university knowledge transfer-related initiatives in the devolved regions of Scotland and Wales. Both regions are seeking to develop science-based innovation strategies in which universities play a central role. Scotland appears fairly well advanced in this regard, whilst in Wales the establishment of regional networks linking actors has been more problematic. It is concluded that whilst devolution has facilitated significant supply-side intervention, future intervention will require a stimulus in the demand for university knowledge. Furthermore, policies will be required to pay more attention to the global environment within which knowledge flows.
