Abstract: In the last decades of the nineteenth century, many European universities adopted a laboratory science system, in which the so-called 'German Model' served as the prime example. What is intriguing about this European phenomenon is that there is little convergence in the models presented by the various actors. In this chapter, the 'German model' is presented as an example of a centre-periphery construct, in which the centre emerges as the focal point for the aspirations fostered at the periphery. The diverging and contrasting interpretations of the German model exemplilfy the complex and ambivalent relationship between centre and periphery.
