    ‘War’, said Georges Clemenceau, once known to his compatriots as ‘Père la Victoire’ for his rousing part in the French war effort during the latter days of the first European Conflict (1914–1918), ‘is too important to be left to the Generals’. The same conviction now emerges in respect of the research function, namely that research management is too important to be left wholly to researchers. That the question should be posed at all reflects at one and the same time, the unavoidable fact that as the so-called Knowledge Society takes its virtual shape, the Nation's research capacity is now held to be a prime determinant of whether the place of individual Nations in the new order will have them comfortably basking in the sun or obscured by the deepest and dankest of shades.
