SPRU - Science Policy Research Unit

Why study at SPRU?

Participants at our 50th Anniversary Conference (September 2016) take up the challenge of discussing '50 years of SPRU in 50 seconds' (or there abouts). In their own words, they provide reflections on what it is like to study at SPRU; the influence of SPRU on science, technology and innovation research and policy; the conference itself; new initiatives; and consider some of the major challenges ahead.
