In the industrialised countries, developments in science and technology are characterised by the increasing specialisation of research and development, an accelerating diversification of knowledge and skills, and a progressive decentralisation of research capacities. The dynamics of these developments present a danger that the research gap between North and South will widen further. Networks linking scientists and institutions that are committed to sharing information and working together have proven to be an important policy instrument to close this gap. Based on the analysis of factors accounting for success and failure of existing North-South research networks, this publication offers practical guidelines to success. The study, funded with support from the Government of Austria, was prepared in co-operation with the National Innovation and Policy Reviews Branch' of DITE and served as a contribution to the work on a Common Vision for the Future of Science and Technology for Development' under the U. N. Commission for Science and Technology for Development of which UNCTAD is the Secretariat
