The EU-SPRI Early Career Researcher Conferences (ECC) “Crossing boundaries in scientific knowledge creation and transmission: trends, challenges and policy implications” will take place in Rome, 14-15-16 October 2015, and is organized by the IRCRES CNR- Institute of Research on Economic Sustainable Growth (former CERIS-CNR).
The conference aims at fostering wide and in depth discussion on the learning and transformative potential stemming from disciplinary, geographical and cultural boundaries crossing as well as on the highly diversified mechanisms of actions which can take place at boundaries (i.e. coordination and networking activities and policies). Different developments of the concept and of properties of boundaries in knowledge creation and transmission will be investigated. Policies implications of boundaries crossing and its effects on governance arrangements at the national and EU level will also be discussed. Consideration of policy implications with respect to the shifts observed in traditional knowledge creation and transmission boundaries will be at the core of the conference discussion.
The conference will include plenary and parallel sessions, and a poster session.
Themes and tracks :
Four main themes will be addressed: 1) Crossing boundaries in Education and Research: patterns and geography of change; 2) New concept, role and practice of academic institutions: merging old mission with new challenges; 3) Changing patterns of collaboration in research and innovation; 4) Beyond standardization in knowledge transmission: changing environments and emerging instruments.
IRCRES CNR, address Rome, Via dei Taurini 19 (Room A, ground floor)
