Research and Policy Workshops in Lisbon on Science, Technology and Social Change

 - 11/07/2007

Logotipo da Presidência Portuguesa da UE – Ciência, Tecnologia e Ensino SuperiorDuring the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union, in the second half of 2007, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education organized a series of workshops on emerging policy topics in Science and Technology and processes related to social change. The aim of these workshops was to propose and discuss new informed ways of dealing with specific topics that are faced when drawing up policies, which often require multidisciplinary perspectives concerning the interactions and connections between science and technology and society, as well as between higher education and the social contexts of research, innovation and entrepreneurship.

The working language in these workshops was English. Each lasted from one day to a day and a half. Each of the workshops discussed a policy document and a selected number of research papers, presented by invited speakers. Each presentation was followed by a period of discussion. Attendees included invited experts from abroad and people from various national contexts. Policy papers and a selected number of research articles were to be edited for publication by an international publisher.
