About the Workshop “Using Science Policy to Facilitate Innovation, Excellence and Global Cooperation”

RC23 ISA midterm workshop was held on 18–19 September, 2017 in St. Petersburg.

Organizers:

International Sociological Association (ISA), Research Commitee 23 on Sociology of Science and Technology (RC23)

 

St Petersburg Branch of the Institute for History of Science and Technology (IHST) of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Partners:

St Petersburg Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences

House of Scientists — Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir

 

 

The topic of the interim workshop attracted interest

among international sociological communities.

 

More than 20 researchers from different regions took part in this event:

Brazil, India, Italy, France, Lithuania, Mexico and Russia.

 

 

 

The workshop, while interested in papers covering the entire spectrum of topics related to science policy, was particularly focused on papers (both theoretical and empirical) dealing with issues related to the governance of science; the role of science policy in the facilitation of innovation and excellence; the role of science policy in creating and eliminating barriers to global cooperation and the international mobility of scientists; and the implications of neoliberal reforms on academia (both locally and globally), particularly as they relate to new forms of association between industry and academia and the governance of the ‘entrepreneurial university’.

 

The workshop provided opportunities for personal exchanges of scientific results and the strengthening of cooperation among researchers from different parts of the world.

 

 

 

RC23 is extremely pleased to have received a special grant from the International Sociological Association and very grateful to all who has contributed their academic papers to this meeting!
