La conferencia EU-SPRI 2018 – “Governance and Relevance: Towards a new generation of research and innovation policies” tendrá lugar del 6 al 8 de junio del 2018 en Paris, Champs-sur-Marne, ESIEE. Cierre de envío de ponencias: 4 de marzo.

 

 

 

The conference builds on and deepens the directions proposed by the 2017 Vienna EUSPRI conference

focuses on new practices and new policies for research and innovation.
These new challenges for the governance of STI policies also develop in a context where impacts become a political leitmotiv, raising the issue of the relevance of policy frames and approaches.

*Five main themes for the conference*

* /New governance/: the question about the governance of STI policy (new
players, new processes and new instruments) should be enlarged ?by
reopening the question of the continuing relevance of this amalgamation,
by discussing ?policy mixes?, and by questioning the importance of the
context (in particular for non-OECD countries).

* /New space of innovation policy/: the question of which conditions are
innovation policies framed and operated in a knowledge-based society?;
discussing the role of civil society organisations, the inclusion of
?new? values in innovation processes (focusing on RRI and
inclusiveness), and types of innovation other than S&T driven innovation.

*/New understanding of globalization/: ?Re-eamine the multiple facets
and effects of the globalisation of knowledge and innovation, beyond the
dynamics of multinational firms?: new geography of knowledge and
innovation; structural impacts of absolute advantages; new frames and
new non-governmental actors for regulating international trade; or new
non governmental actors supporting research.

* /New challenges for renewed research orientations: /situate//the
debates on ?societal challenges? in perspective with the historical
?mission-oriented? and ?sectoral? innovation policies, which have
developed todays? portfolio of instruments. Examine the need for
systemic approaches, like in transition studies, dealing with climate
change and energy. How do similar approaches work with agricultural or
health challenges, and what types of transition dynamics are at stake
and what are their policy implications?

/* Market, users, citizens: /The conference will offer the possibility
to deepen our knowledge of on-going citizen and user-driven economic and
societal changes coined by such ?umbrella terms? as DIY society, the
sharing economy, crowd sourcing or political consumption; and to discuss
their implications about the relation between societal change and
innovation and the potential implication for innovation policies.

In each theme, we will? focus on the need for original knowledge to
understand changes in the policy instruments and public policies,
focussing on the large diversity of phenomena and results and their
meaning as well as the roleof contexts. We also focus on methodologies,
relevant indicators, and research arrangements that allow to better
position, characterise and follow these on-going dynamics. Finally,
discussions are open on all important themes for the field, such as the
evaluation and impact of STI policies, innovation ecosystems, funding or
infrastructures. Open-ended sessions will be opened repsonding to the
needs of colleagues attending the Conference.
