Cursos Livres // Lisbon Doctoral School on Innovation

Organização: IHC (Maria Fernanda Rollo e Tiago Brandão) e Escola Doutoral "Pedro Hispano"
Local: FCSH-UNL | Edifício de ID
Data: 18 a 22 de junho de 2015


Within the ‘Escola Doutoral Pedro Hispano’ (FCSH-UNL), the IHC organises the LISBON DOCTORAL SCHOOL ON INNOVATION open to all graduate students interested in enrolling.

Coordinated by Maria Fernanda Rollo and Tiago Brandão

The Institute of Contemporary History (IHC), in conjunction with the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa (NOVA) are promoting a four-day Doctoral School on Innovation Studies, between the 18th and the 22nd June 2015.

The Doctoral School is open to all Portuguese and foreigners who are interested in getting to know or deepen their knowledge on Innovation Studies, covering a range of foci from the Idea of Innovation to its Politics, and giving a wide view on the most recent and original perspectives from one of the most actual and interdisciplinary field in scholar research.

The IHC | NOVA aims to familiarize students with different perspectives for the study of Innovation, within an interdisciplinary environment that calls a good range of expertises, from historical to policy and institutional analysis, passing through the most updated and original conceptual approaches in the international community of scholars engaged in present and historical studies of innovation. Considering how the Innovation Studies field is interacting with a scope of real and imagined issues in contemporary societies, we believe that this Doctoral School is going to be an opportunity to guide scholars on their on-going post-graduation research and to deepen perceptions and social knowledge on those issues.

Each session is thought to be an autonomous lecture, framed within one of three Thematic Modules ("The Idea of Innovation", "The Politics of Innovation" and "The Studies of Innovation"), which provides cohesion not just to the multidisciplinary approach of each of the sections, but allows the participant to benefit from a wise and diversified ensemble of experts on the subject. The three taught modules appear in order and are organised in ten sessions, including opening and closing sessions.

The teaching courses – conducted in English, followed by commentators interventions and a generalized debate –, are offered by a multidisciplinary group of scholars combining invited senior researchers and junior scholars, including foreign speakers, of different backgrounds and institutional filiations – all specialists and involved in on-going advanced research in the topics being addressed during this advanced training school. This feature guarantees that the teaching will not only be accessible to everyone, but also that state of the art knowledge will be accessible to all who wish to enrol.
