    Abstract We use cluster analysis to describe the regional linkages that arise through funding of research contract networks in the EU. We find five significantly different kinds of networks, that we label as follows: 1) Technological development, 2) Basic research, 3) Quasi-elite, 4) Elite and 5) Southern. These networks are described in terms of three basic dimensions: quality, type of partners, and size combined with cost of the project. In terms of variables constructed along these dimensions, we find that the networks are homogeneously formed and that regions of similar technological capabilites are linked together. We discuss this empirical fact by means of a model in which researchers are matched by skill.
