Partner event: Inaugural lecture at the Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP) at University College London
The inaugural lecture of Richard L. Hudson, Editor-in-Chief and Vice Chair at Science|Business and Honorary Professor at the Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP) at University College London.
Conflict in politics is necessary in a democracy, but often hard to manage. For a case study in political management, take a close look at the EU’s Horizon/Framework programme for research and innovation. Since the early 1980s, the European Commission has been balancing competing interests – among member states, political families, lobby groups and civil society – when drafting its ever-growing programmes.
Today, the Framework Programme is one of the world’s biggest research efforts, on which Britain leans heavily. This lecture will analyse the political conflicts and resolutions, observed first-hand by a prominent journalist who has followed the programme’s growth since 1984.
