Abstract: We develop a model to analyse the interaction between science, technology and social welfare. In the model, there are three types of actor: a monopolistic firm, scientists choosing to work either in the firm or in the university, and quality-demanding consumers. Peer control institution of the university affects quality of science used by the firm as an input. Peer control affects the firm's costs as well. First we show that the effort level in the university is too low. Further, we show that the firm might be willing to employ more scientists if peer control in the university became stricter. We determine the conditions for both the direct and indirect welfare effects of peer control.
