Eu-SPRI Winter School on Innovation for Transformative Change

winter school on transformation

A call for applications has been issued for a new Eu-SPRI Winter School on Innovation policy for Transformative Change.

The Winter School takes place on 16-20 January 2017 at the University of Sussex.

The course seeks to familiarise participants with state-of-the-art debates about the ‘transformative change’ frame of Science, Technology & Innovation (STI) policy and its associated practices. Through seminars and discussions, the school participants will explore its conceptual underpinnings and its connections and departures from conventional STI policy. Sessions will also discuss concrete examples of efforts to promote such transformations.

Three guiding questions will be addressed:

  • How may contrasting understandings of transformative change be brought to bear on policy responses to pressing contemporary challenges?
  • How to ensure such responses are inclusive and democratic?
  • How to advance such responses through transdisciplinary approaches and alliances?

How to apply

Applications must be sent before 5 November at 17.00.
