This working paper presents the results of the initial mapping studies for a larger project (PEAC)1 aimed at improving the knowledge base for research and innovation policy for the formation of centres of excellence. The excellence policies and centres' profiles are mapped and compared across Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The results are preliminary; the mapping will be used as input for comparative case studies of the impact of centres of excellence (CoE) schemes in the four countries. Hence, this working paper presents a considerable amount of data, but only a limited amount of overall analysis and conclusions.
