This report describes the work conducted between March 1998 and November 2000 by the METDAC (Managing European Technology: Defence and Competitiveness Issues) Network, building on earlier work done by participants on the restructuring of the European defence industrial and technological base.
The initial focus of the work was to analyse the institutional forms and policies that have been developed by firms and governments in response to the problems presented to the defence technology sector by the conjunction of globalisation and the end of the Cold War. This entailed data collection and analysis of information at the levels of governments, firms, and industrial sectors about institutions and policies/strategies.
