eBook - 1994
Rate this:
After expanding for centuries, science is reaching its limits to growth. We can no longer afford the ever-increasing cost of exploring ever-wider research opportunities. In the competition for resources, science is becoming much more tightly organized. A radical, pervasive and permanent structural change is taking place. This already affects the whole research system, from everyday laboratory life to the national budget. The scientific enterprise cannot avoid fundamental change, but excessive managerial insistence on accountability, evaluation, 'priority setting', etc. can be very inhospitable to expertise, innovation, criticism and creativity. Can the research system be reshaped without losing many features that have made science so productive?
