In this study the focus is on the absorption capacity of the users with respect to scientific information. It is suggested that lack of scientific competence at the top level of management is at present a main bottleneck in government as well as in business. We hope this essay will provide a useful survey of the literature in this area of science policy studies and stimulate the theoretical discussion. Both empirical surveys and practical science policy will benefit from an improvement of the theoretical analysis.
