One particular idea in the science and technology policymaking arena is to emphasise the role of universities in latecomer countries' catching-up strategies through 'early entry' in the development of emerging technologies. The thesis explores the extent to which universities in latecomer countries could actually assume such a role. The thesis decided to tackle this challenge by Integrating the theoretical ideas of Perez and Soete (1988) with more recent ideas on systems of innovation. The thesis has used a technological system framework to analyse the role of universities. This framework is used to examine the contribution of universities to the development of a set of system functions that are essential during the introduction phase of the technology's life cycle.
