[CANCELLED] Eu-SPRI 2020

Eu-SPRI Forum

The “European Forum for Studies of Policies for Research and Innovation” (Eu-SPRI Forum) aims to strengthen the vibrant but dispersed interdisciplinary community of researchers focusing on interdisciplinary dimensions related to policy and governance in the field of knowledge creation and innovation.

Studies of Policies for Research and Innovation (SPRI) is a growing research field since the 1960s, evolving at the encounter of economics, political science, sociology, Science and Technology Studies (STS), business administration, geography and history.

The Eu-SPRI Forum was founded in Paris in June 2010 and has presently 17 member institutions.

Next Generation

Eu-SPRI Forum supports the intellectual and career development of early career SPRI researchers (doctoral candidates; PostDocs), most notably through doctoral programs, conferences, summer schools and mobility between the partner groups.

Structuring the field

Eu-SPRI Forum holds annual European Conferences on Policies for Research and Innovation, featuring both presently relevant and incoming new themes. Eu-SPRI Forum aspires to anticipate new SPRI themes, concepts and methods. The exploration of new interdisciplinary analytical horizons is facilitated through co-funding of working groups, producing position papers within up to 18 months.
