From Liberal Studies to Innovation Research: Celebrating 50 years of science and innovation policy and management research at the University of Manchester
|Dates:||3 November 2017|
|What is it:||Conferences|
|Organiser:||Manchester Institute of Innovation Research|
|Who is it for:||University staff, Adults, Alumni|
In 2017 the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and marking over 50 years of science and innovation policy and management studies at the University of Manchester. Our history stretches back to Fred Jevons establishing the Liberal Studies in Science programme in 1966, and on through our later groupings, including PREST, CRIC and CROMTEC.
To mark our anniversary, to celebrate Manchester’s contributions to the science and innovation studies community, and to look forward to the future, on Friday 3 November 2017, we will be holding an anniversary gathering at the University of Manchester. We will reflect on the past with alumni, key stakeholders, and academic friends and colleagues, and consider the challenges in the discipline over the coming years with friends and colleagues.
We would be delighted if you could join us.
