Tsukuba Science City is the world's most ambitious attempt to 'turbocharge' scientific collaboration. James W. Dearing looks at the political and economic context within which the plans for Tsukuba were laid, how those plans changed during the process of implementation, and at the functioning of Tsukuba today.
