Resumen:
To compare public research institutions in different countries;To analyze the dynamics of science innovation in the two most important  research performing organizations in Argentina and Spain;To assess the relative importance of institutional and organizational factors in the performance of research institutes and labs;Institutionalist perspectives claim that formal structures determine the organizational capabilities for innovation and changeWeak or strong institutional environments differ in the relative autonomy of sublevels of the organization     a) to pursue independent goals    b) to make decisions about employment, career, budget and research prioritiesSome authors (Hage & Mote,2008) emphasise the role of diversity in providing the organization with a power base to be transformational and independent from single sources.Whitley (2003, 2008) claims that science competitive pluralist systems promote risk taking, new research goals and approachesHowever two institutional factors should be taking into account in the public sciences:    a) the degree of state delegation or centralization of control over research jobs to research elites and sublevels of organizations    b) the ways in which public research is funded, and the relative importance of external funding versus internal block grant funding
