The central research question of this study addresses the effects of governing models on the research practices of basic research units in public universities in the fields of medieval history and biotechnology. The analysis shows that shifts in governance influence research practices to a certain extent. All survey units responded to their changing institutional environments by attempting to reduce uncertainty and to maintain stability in their core activities – with varying success.
