Nadaljevanje programske skupine IRSA (in koncesije) v obdobju 2022-2028

Javna agencija za raziskovalno dejavnost RS in Ministrstvo za izobraževanje, znanost in šport sta nam na podlagi prijave na razpis in evalvacije tujih recenzentov odobrila nadaljevanje programske skupine (in koncesije) v obdobju 2022-2028. Ukvarjali se bomo s prenosom znanja, odnosom med eksperti in politiko v okviru strategij za obvladovanje pandemije ter antinomijami družbe znanja oz. pojavom postfaktične družbe.

Iščemo nove sodelavce

Na Inštitutu za razvojne in strateške analize vabimo k sodelovanju nove sodelavce ali sodelavke s končanim magisterijem ali doktoratom (oz. doktorske študente), ki imajo izkušnje z raziskovalnim delo. K sodelovanju vabimo predvsem družboslovce in raziskovalce/ke iz biomedicinskih ved, ki jih zanima interdisciplinarno raziskovanje, saj se bomo v prihodnjih mesecih predvsem posvetili projektu analize spoprijemanja z epidemijo v Sloveniji in širše (v sklopu CRP-a, 2021).

Za več informacij glede možnosti sodelovanja zainteresirane prosimo, da nam pišete na irsa@institut-irsa.si in dodate svojo predstavitev (CV).

Frane Adam, Hans Westlund (editors): Innovation in Socio-Cultural Context. Routledge, New York, 2013.

This book focuses on the rule of social capital in the process of innovation: the social networks and the norms; values and attitudes (such as trust) of the actors; social capital as both bonding and bridging links between actors; and social capital as a feature at all spatial levels, from the single inventor to the transnational corporation. Contributors from a wide variety of countries and disciplines explore the cultural framework of innovation through empirics, case studies and examination of conceptual and methodological dilemmas.
