Call for submissions: EU-SPRI Early-career researcher event on ‘Studies of
Policies for Research and Innovation: State of the art and future
directions’, at Utrecht University, 1-2 June 2020




The deadline for submissions is 15 February 2020.


Eu-SPRI offers a course for early-career researchers working on science,
technology and innovation (STI) policy. During the course we will explore
the future of this scientific field and there is ample room to discuss your
own work. Moreover, the course provides an excellent opportunity to meet
fellow early-career researchers from across Europe. The course covers two
days and takes place just before the yearly conference Eu-SPRI Conference
2020.



The first day (1 June 2020) is dedicated to paper development. All
participants are required to hand in a paper and to provide feedback on
three other papers. This is a great chance to receive in-depth feedback on
your own work by both fellow early-career researchers and leading experts
in the field. In addition there will be plenary sessions by Professor Sally
Wyatt (Maastricht University) on digital methods and by Professor Magnus
Gulbrandsen (University of Oslo) on academic publishing. We conclude the
day with a lovely dinner in the city of Utrecht.



On the second day (2 June 2020) you will join in a foresight activity about
the future of STI policy research. Based on a structured approach developed
by Fraunhofer ISI the participants discover, discuss, conceptualize and
reflect on how socio-technical trends and endogenous dynamics lead to
different future scenarios. Participants get the opportunity to interact
with each other and with experts, which might help them with thinking about
their own research as well as their own role in broader societal and policy
debates. The results will be presented in a plenary session – on the past,
present, future of STI policy research – during the main Eu-SPRI conference
during which early-career researchers take centre stage.



Some practicalities:



- By early-career researchers we mean researchers working at
universities or other knowledge organizations (in the broadest sense) who
are doing their PhD or have obtained their PhD max. 3 years ago.
- The manuscript for the writing workshop should not already be
published. The text certainly does not need to be perfect yet, but it
should be developed well enough so readers can understand the argument.
The
texts should be 6,000-10,000 words.
- You can participate in a public event on Tuesday night for free about
the future of digitization with contributions from amongst others Evgeny
Morozov.
- Costs for hotels (three nights: 31 May to 3 June) and food are covered
by Eu-SPRI.
- The deadline for registration is 15 February 2020. Please submit short
biography (max. 300 words) and motivation letter (max. one page) to
k.beumer@uu.nl.
- The event can accommodate 25 participants. These will be selected by
the organizing committee on the basis of the biography and motivation
letter.
