Abstract: 

The Canadian Innovation Systems Research Network (ISRN) has been a highly successful approach to fostering a small branch of social sciences research and managing a large research project on technological clustering in Canada. In the light of this success, the purpose of this paper is to examine the structure and function of networks of academic research in relevant fields in a number of other countries with advanced systems for funding and overseeing university research.
