In order to obtain the PhD degree Birgitte Gorm Hansen has submitted her PhD thesis. The thesis investigates the strategies deployed by Danish scientists as they adapt to changes in research policy.

The political agenda of transforming Denmark into a leading knowledge economy requires that university researchers maneuver a complex mixture of academic, industrial and political agendas. How do research managers strategically adapt in the knowledge economy? What are the costs and trade-offs involved in such adaptation?
