The research work examines the influence of government agencies in the process of restructuring the higher education system in Ireland in times of massification and public sector reform. A specific focus of the research is on the intention to introduce a new institutional type, Technological Universities, to the field, and the early effects of this innovation upon organisational isomorphism. Comparisons are drawn from other higher education systems across Europe.
