Conference blog goes live

Posted by Maria Nedeva on June 7, 2014  |   Comments Off

Our conference blog has gone live. The blog will host posts from a number of scholars who will be presenting their work at the conference. The blog will showcase the breadth of work being presented at EuSPRI 2014 in Manchester. The first posts are from Nicola De Liso and his co-authors on what we can learn about innovation from the failure of superconducting supercomputers, and from Gaston Heimeriks and Pierre-Alexandre Balland on whether ‘smart specialisation’ is really such a smart strategy for cities.

EU-SPRI 2014 is coming to Manchester

Posted by Maria Nedeva on November 1, 2013  |   Comments Off

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.

Our 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.

 

The Manchester Institute of Innovation Research is proud to host and continue the series of annual conferences funded by the EU-SPRI network which so far have been taking place in Twente (2010), Karlsruhe (2012) and  Madrid (2013).
