Eu-SPRI 2014 Conference: “Science and Innovation Policy: Dynamics, Challenges, Responsibility and Practice”

external Event

Date: June 18-20, 2014
Location / Venue: Manchester, UK

 

The Eu-SPRI Conference 2014 “Science and Innovation Policy: Dynamics, Challenges, Responsibility and Practice” will be held in Manchester from 18th till 20th of June 2014.

The EU-SPRI conference provides the community with an opportunity to review our research agenda in the broad field of science, technology and innovation policy studies. For the Manchester conference, we hope to encourage creativity and exploration beyond approaches and assumptions that may be reaching the limits of their utility. The key concerns are:

  • Understanding policy dynamics, and the links between policies, funding patterns, interventions, outcomes and effects;
  • Understanding the rise of goal, challenge or mission orientation in science and technology policies;
  • Addressing questions of responsible governance in science and technology policies;
  • Addressing the challenges of co-ordination and implementation of policies.

 Organiser:

The Manchester Institute of Innovation Research, The University of Manchester
