Abstract:There is no overall institutional framework for the internationalization of science. This study provides an analysis how research dynamics of three fields of science affect the governance of International Research Programs (IRPs). A framework has been developed to investigate the landscape and organization of IRPs to explore the interrelation between governance (in terms of scientific planning and funding) and knowledge dynamics of a research area. Three cases have been analyzed: CERN, the Census of Marine Life (CoML) and the International Human Dimensions Program on global environmental change (IHDP). The interrelation between knowledge dynamics and governance is most vividly visible in the scientific (steering) committees of a program or project. Essential are key actors, often internationally recognized research managers, that can translate and negotiate between different arenas. For each of the three IRPs, an ‘integrator’ can be assigned that brings and holds the program together.
