An empirical approach to scientific institutions and science policies is essential for a historical and political understanding of the management of science. Working within this understanding, the main purpose of this article is to analyse Portuguese scientific policy as proposed by the important actors of a peripheral ‘science, technology and innovation system’. Based on archival and printed sources, this is a qualitative study of historical evidence based on influential personalities, policy measures and institutional trajectories. As such, the purpose is to understand and evaluate the interconnections within science policy, for the purpose of understanding technological change strategies in Portugal, identifying its trends and agents, as well as pointing out the policy measures and programmes proposed between those transitional years. As an empirical and contextual study of the national situation, the aim of the article is to provide a reflexive view in order to consider, in a wider contextual manner, the main issues within Iberian science policies, during a transition period that took place between the 1970s and the 1990s.

Manufacturing Life in the Age of Genomic Capital
The interconnected fields of genomic science, genome editing, and biotechnology have emerged over the past half-century as a revolution in the production of new life forms that have been eagerly adopted by agriculture, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and other business sectors. While many – including the Nobel Committee – have heralded this as a “new epoch” of limitless possibilities for positive transformation, In Mutant Ecologies: Manufacturing Life in the Age of Genomic Capital, Erica Borg and Amedeo Policante show how genetic science has been deeply intertwined from its beginning with the raw imperatives of capital accumulation. “Genomic capital,” the authors’ term for the use of genetic materials in industrial production, has literally altered many of life’s metabolic processes in service to capital’s demands. Within a socio-historical context defined by the iron rules of competition and exploitation, capital no longer contents itself with simply appropriating the living bodies of plants and animals but purposefully designs their internal metabolism, and in that way it redesigns the countless living vectors that constitute the global biosphere. This biological revolution will ripple through the everyday lives of people everywhere. Erica and Amedeo will present Mutant Ecologies and Ariel Salleh and Stuart Newman will discuss the book and initiate the conversation.
