Informing the Knowledge Society - Feeding SSH Research into Policy Design in Latin America and Europe
As its final event EULAKS project holds a policy workshop on September 23-24 at the London School of Economics (LSE). In the framework of the workshop main results of the analytical work packages of the project will be presented to policy makers and targeted groups of stakeholders. The analytical tasks include a review on trends and patterns in the Europe-Latin America co-operation in the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), an analysis of the role of SSH for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) policy design and implementation, and an analysis of scientific communities and research networks in both regions. Upon the research results policy recommendations for future policies are designed and jointly discussed during the workshop with the aim to support future SSH co-operation between Europe and Latin America. The discussions will be enriched by keynotes from international experts on the utilisation of SSH research results for public policy design.
