This Workshop, which is supported by the University of York’s Research Office, brings together members of the University of York Science, Technology and Society (UoYSTS) network which was established in 2015, with doctoral students and staff on the White Rose Science and Technology Studies Pathway. In addition, members of a European network, ‘Navigating Knowledge Landscapes’ related to the use of social media will be attending.  Guests from senior university staff are also invited, as are regional members of the Association for Studies In Innovation Science and Technology (AsSIST-UK  http://assist-uk.com/ ). Stakeholders from the York region will also be invited to attend as potential user-collaborators.

The primary purpose of the event is to develop new research capacity, collaborative interdisciplinary links and plans for future funding. The focus for the meeting will be on the four themes of metrics, governance and policy, innovation and temporality.
