Eu-SPRI Forum

The Eu-SPRI Forum logo

Studies of Policies for Research and Innovation (SPRI) is a growing research field since the 1960s, evolving at the encounter of economics, political science, sociology, Science and Technology Studies (STS), business administration, geography and history. The 'European Forum for Studies of Policies for Research and Innovation' (Eu-SPRI Forum) aims to strengthen the vibrant but dispersed interdisciplinary community of researchers focusing on interdisciplinary dimensions related to policy and governance in the field of knowledge creation and innovation. 

The Eu-SPRI Forum was founded in Paris in June 2010 and has presently 18 member institutions.  The Manchester Institute of Innovation Research has an active role in the Forum and currently hosts the Secretariat.
