Impact of Research and Innovation Policy at the Crossroads of Policy Design, Implementation and Evaluation conference
Date: 05/11/2018 - 06/11/2018
Location: Austria Center Vienna, Bruno-Kreisky-Platz 1, 1220 Vienna
Research and Innovation (R&I) policy is more than ever charged with demonstrating societal impact. If the new impact agenda of R&I policy is taken seriously, than this has several implications for policy design, implementation and evaluation.
This largest European R&I policy evaluation conference is devoted to the challenge of generating, understanding and assessing societal impact through R&I policy. It discusses new rationales and new demands for R&I policy in service of society, reflects challenges in R&I policy-making triggered by these rationales and demands, and scrutinises what is expected and delivered from different policy intelligence approaches, in particular impact assessment and evaluation.
The conference is organised on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology by:
- Austrian Platform for Research and Technology Policy Evaluation
- Manchester Institute of Innovation Research
- IFRIS – Institut Francilien Recherche, Innovation et Société, Paris
