Deadline for full papers or extended abstracts : 30th November 2010
Following the success of the three previous workshops held in Torino under the auspices of LEI & BRICK (University of Torino – Collegio Carlo Alberto) with the support of the DIME network of excellence, we are organising a new workshop in collaboration with the COST Action on “Science and Technology Research in a Knowledge-based Economy - STRIKE”on February 18-19, 2011.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together a small group of scholars interested in the analysis of the production and diffusion of scientific research from an economics, historical, organizational and policy perspective.
Call for papers
As in previous workshops we aim to attract contributions from both junior and senior scholars, a minimum number of slots is reserved for junior researchers (PhD, Post-docs or scholars who obtained their phd in 2007 or later). The best junior scholar paper will be awarded a special mention prize. See below for details.
A group of about 12 papers will be selected from the open submissions on the basis of peer review for presentation to have enough time for discussion.
The workshop does not have a narrow focus, it aims to include papers form the various streams of research developed in recent years in and around the area of public and private scientific research. We invite contributions which focus on one or more of the following topics (but they are not limited to):
Organization of research activities in universities, PROs and private R&D labs
Knowledge transfer from academia
Research funding models
Teaching and research interactions
The contribution of research and teaching to economic growth and development
