This has been done with the help of case studies of technological and managerial intervention from three specific CSIR laboratories. The paper also discusses different aspects of regional characterisation, specialisation and the role played by these national laboratories and others in trying to resolve the technological, managerial and social problems faced by industrial and artisan clusters.
