Global Science Spaces is the website for a new international network examining the diversity of global science spaces as hybrid physical, political-ideological and cultural forms.
The network comprises 7 partner institutions across the UK, US, Europe and Asia, namely: University College London, Oxford Brookes University, University of Twente, Stanford University, National Taiwan University, Korea University and National University of Singapore. The project is funded by The Leverhulme Trust, more formally under the title ‘Global Science Scapes: Dimensions of Transnationalism’. It runs from September 2014 to February 2017.
Our research investigates how global labour markets and knowledge flows interact with patterns of international diplomacy and ideas about science, architecture and planning to create distinctive science landscapes around the world. It focuses specifically on six national comparative case studies: Science Vale UK, Oxfordshire; Kennispark, Netherlands; Daedeok Innopolis, South Korea; Silicon Valley, US; Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan; and Singapore Science Park.
