As part of the Science Policy Research Unit’s 50th anniversary in 2016, it will be hosting a major conference from 7-9 September 2016 at the University of Sussex. The conference will also be complemented by a full programme of activities to celebrate 50 years of SPRU.
Over three days, based on the overarching theme of ‘Transforming Innovation’, SPRU will bring together leading thinkers from business, academia and civil society to explore the future of innovation policy. You can view the call for proposals on the SPRU website.
SPRU jointly hosts the STEPS Centre in the UK, along with the Institute of Development Studies, which also celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016.
