Intergovernmental cooperation in the making of European research Pierre Papon Until the mid-20th century, scientific research in Europe was a national undertaking, although cooperation between scientists had been an old tradition, even during war periods (Rossi, 1999; Blay and NicolaTdis, 2001).
The Gvandes ~ c o l e snowadays perform high-quality research and in addition to the Paris region, several regional concentrations of research and innovation have developed, wellknown examples being Grenoble and Sophia Antipolis. System-wide reform was, of course, necessary in the Central and Eastern European countries after 1989 as their systems, which were based on Academies of Science running large parts of basic research and on state companies accounting for most industrial production in a plannedeconomy mode, had to adapt to a world where universities and private innovation-focused companies would be the dominant players.
