Key Missions

Next generation

Eu-SPRI Forum supports the intellectual and career development of early career SPRI researchers (doctoral candidates; PostDocs), most notably through doctoral programs, conferences, summer schools and mobility between the partner groups.

 

 

 

Early Career Research Training Schools (ECS)

The field of research and innovation studies is diverse and has homes in different disciplinary areas. No regular PhD training events are held at European level, unlike for example the established ETIC schools for economists of technological change. Young researchers need dedicated events to acquire and exchange knowledge in two directions:

• Methods-based schools for acquiring new capabilities

• Topic-based schools.

The Eu-SPRI Forum supports one summer and one winter school per year with some 25 students each.

Eu-SPRI Early Career Researcher Conferences (ECC)

The aim of the conferences is to gather together outstanding early career researchers with established academics for a series of exchanges about ongoing and new research in research and innovation policy. Early career researchers can network with one another, across institutions and countries, and with established researchers, and gain critical feedback on their work, as well as experience in critiquing the work of peers.

The Eu-SPRI Forum will support one conference per year. An ECC would normally have 25-30 participants.

Eu-SPRI PhD Circulation Award

The circulation of PhD researchers among Eu-SPRI members is an important element of the training activities of the network. It addresses our objective of offering a European pathway to PhD researchers in this field. The proposed location of a visit of normally three months or longer should be in a different “national system” so that the PhD researcher experiences a different institutional environment.

Eu-SPRI will award a lump sum of 2.000 Euros per candidate (for travel expenses and accommodation). The Award can be granted to doctoral researchers in their second year of PhD thesis or beyond (and early stage researchers, who have completed their PhD within the past 12 months, in exceptional circumstances).
