International Scientific STI Policy Evaluation Conference

international conference announcement

14-15 November 2013

Techgate Vienna, Austria

As a result of the emergence of new policies, measures and instruments as well as voices raised by society for inclusive STI policies, STI evaluations theory are increasingly challenged to deliver discernible social, economic and ecological benefits in effective ways. This will not only require new thinking, methodological diversity and interaction between policy design and evaluation studies but

also cooperation between STI governance, public management, evaluators and society in general.

The conference aims to attract papers that contribute to providing theoretical concepts and empirical approaches to forward the next generation of STI policy evaluations. It also invites contributions that critically discuss methodological issues, conceptual developments and novel normative challenges concerning innovation and STI policy evaluation. This conference will bring together leading and upcoming researchers across a range of social science disciplines as well as STI policy-makers and evaluation practitioners to provide an open forum to promote and enhance the academic discussion about new emerging developments in STI policy and their effects on evaluation at different levels.

The conference welcomes papers from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and traditions, including evaluation studies, science and technology studies, the economics of science and innovation, political science, sociology, public administration, research (funding) management, entrepreneurship,

technology assessment and social impact research. The organizers encourage contributions that conceptually, methodologically and/or empirically advance the topic.
