The conference is co-organised with and co-sponsored by the
“European Forum for Studies of Policies for Research and Innovation”
The Eu-SPRI Forum aims to strengthen the vibrant but dispersed interdisciplinary community of researchers focussing on interdisciplinary dimensions related to policy and governance in the field of knowledge creation and innovation. The Eu-SPRI Forum has three key missions:
Next generation – supporting the intellectual and career development of early career SPRI researchers (doctoral candidates; PostDocs
Exploratory initiatives – The Eu-SPRI Forum aspires to anticipate new SPRI themes, concepts and methods.
Structuring the field – The Eu-SPRI Forum will hold bi-annual European Conferences on Policies for Research and Innovation, featuring both presently relevant and incoming new themes.
