2013年5月23日上午,曼彻斯特大学创新研究中心的Philip Shapira教授在我院开展了题为“Interpreting trajectories of nanotechnology research and innovation”的讲座。

讲座以纳米技术为例,探索了这一新兴技术在研究和创新中的关系,Shapira教授还进一步探讨了是否存在纳米技术悖论(Nanotechnology paradox)的问题。Shapira教授和同事在研究中对全球出版物、专利和纳米技术企业进行了分析,并对下一代纳米材料和系统的转型与适应过程进行了评估。这项研究将对纳米技术及其他新兴技术的预期管理和治理产生影响。

演讲结束后,Shapira教授耐心回答了现场老师和同学感兴趣的相关问题。此次讲座不仅得到了我院政策中心老师和研究生同学的热情参与,同时还吸引了其他学院和高校的老师和同学。
