dc.description.abstract We use network and correspondence analysis to describe the composition of the research networks in the European BRITE--EURAM program. Our main finding is that 27\% of the participants in this program fall into one of two sets of highly ``interconnected'' institutions --one centered around large firms (with smaller firms and research centers providing specialized services), and the other around universities--. Moreover, these ``hubs'' are composed largely of institutions coming from the technologically most advanced regions of Europe. This is suggestive of the difficulties of attaining European ``cohesion'', as technically advanced institutions naturally link with partners of similar technological capabilities.
