In this paper we present results of research done on the network of Slovenian scholars, where nodes are research groups and there is a link between two groups if there exist at least one publication co-authored by at least one member of each of these groups. We put special focus to sub-networks created by research groups forming the so-called Competence centres (CC). Each of this CC received approximately 6.5 million EUR of research money for time span of four years to create new technological products and processes. Our expectation was that these strong financial impulses will also imply significant improvement of the network parameters describing size, productivity and connectivity of CC. We have realised that for the three CCs which we took into consideration this is not the case.
