Abstract This article outlines contemporary changes in the governance of science policy in England and assesses the recent emergence of regional science policies. The early 2000s have been marked by substantial sub-national mobilisation, representation and institutional creation through the regional science and industry councils. Complementary policy functions have developed at national and regional levels and cracks in national state control have appeared, especially in light of the strengthening relationship between science and economic development. A minimal system of multi-level governance has emerged, but one which enshrines and protects previous policy paradigms. The significance of recent sub-national developments is limited by governance structures, frameworks for action and dominant policy discourses which combine to constrain the development of strategies for regional and local science-based growth.
