In line with its commitment to the next generation of scholars, INGENIO is pleased to announce the 2016 Eu-SPRI & INGENIO PhD Days, a two-day event organized by INGENIO’S doctoral students. The event aims at providing an enriching experience for early career researchers working on a wide range of Science, Technology and Innovation Policy issues. One purpose of the PhD Days is to contribute to the development of research capacities and skills. Moreover, participants will be offered an opportunity to share experiences and knowledge and build networks among a new generation of researchers, as well as developing their presentation and communication skills.
The third edition will focus on how science, technology and innovation policies and practices are evolving to tackle the many challenges our societies face. Every actor in our innovation systems is subjected to pressures for change; we will discuss the nature of these pressures, and how key organizations like firms, universities and civil society groups interact: new forms of knowledge generation, modern ways of science and technology communication, stressing collaboration among all stakeholders in science and innovation activities; as well as grassroots organizations and their approaches to innovation. All these emerging dynamics offer opportunities for innovative research and challenges for policy development.
The conference will be organised into five main lines. Paper submissions are invited that address any of the following:
- Knowledge exchange and co-creation
- New perspectives on networks and public outreach
- Firms: innovation management in transition
- Social Innovations and transformations to sustainability
- The future of the university and higher education
