This seminar is part of the CHSTM Seminars Series February-May 2014; Science policy lecture together with Manchester Institute of Innovation Research It is our pleasure to invite you to the Fred Jevons Science Policy Lecture: Fashions in science policy, past and present by Professor Arie Rip (University of Twente) A number of important issues in science policy, like 'Big Science' (from the late 1950s onwards) and 'Responsible Research and Innovation' or ‘Grand Challenges’ (more recently), have also the trappings of a fashion, including the use of a few words to capture the thrust and allowing it to travel. This is perhaps clearest for 'Mode 2 of knowledge production. What remains, then, after the fashion has passed? I will analyse two past cases and two present ones and inquire into what such dynamics tell us about science policy and how science evolves.
The Fred Jevons Science Policy Lecture is jointly organised with the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research to commemorate the founding professor of “Liberal Studies in Science” at Manchester, Fred Jevons.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.
