The European Challenge: Innovation, Policy Learning and Social Cohesion in the New Knowledge Economy

Internal News - 29 November 2005

Benchmarking the knowledge economy

The Department of Social & Policy Sciences at the University of Bath is organising a symposium in association with the European Institute of the London School of Economics to be held at LSE (Room D202) on Monday 19 December from 3 - 6.15pm.

The symposium builds on an EU-funded collaborative project involving three of the departments of the University: Social & Policy Sciences, Economics & International Development and the School of Management.

The fruits of the partnership were recently published in a book entitled: The European Challenge: Innovation, Policy Learning and Social Cohesion in the New Knowledge Economy by Professor Graham Room in collaboration with Jacob Dencik, Nick Gould, Richard Kamm, Philip Powell, Jan Steyaert, Richard Vidgen and Adrian Winnett.

The symposium brings together recent academic, statistical and policy-related work on the knowledge economy. It focuses on three themes:

These themes are commonly treated in isolation from each other. The symposium explores their interrelationships and the implications for future policy and research.

The symposium will be of interest to academics, government statisticians and policy makers working in these areas.

The symposium will also include contributions from the European Commission, the Directorate of Science, Technology and Industry at the OECD and the UK Office of National Statistics, as well as a variety of other scholars.

Although participation is free of charge, if you are intending to come please notify us in advance, to ensure that there are enough places: K.D'Arcy@bath.ac.uk
