Title: ‘Good technology does not require public investment’

 

Participants: PhD and early career researchers working in the Faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences, Technology or Physical Sciences.

We have a number of spaces for social scientists and science/technology PhD students and early career researchers to take part in the event and will select participants to cover a range of disciplines. 

 

Format: Professor Michael Pollitt, Judge Business School and Dr Julian Peck, Cambridge Enterprise will both give a 5-10 min overview of the issues from a policy and technology viewpoint to stimulate the discussion. The groups will then discuss the issues with a mix of scientists/engineers, humanities and social scientists. 

 

Discussion to include the following:

  • As a scientist/social scientist or humanities researcher discuss how different disciplines approach the issues around good technology and public investment.
  • What factors affect which technologies are adopted?
  • What are the risks/benefits to society?
  • How do market forces affect technology development and policy?
  • What role should government play to nurture new technologies?

About Us

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas.
