OSIRIS at the European Consortium for Political Research
OSIRIS researchers from Oslo and Manchester participated with a total of three papers in this year's ECPR conference in Wroclaw.
This year’s General Conference of ECPR (European Consortium for Political Research) was held in Wroclaw, Poland, and researchers from OSIRIS participated with three papers in the section on Knowledge and Governance. The section provides a forum for research which explores the relationships between knowledge and policymaking; both how knowledge is used in the making of policies, and the organization of knowledge for policy.
Katherine Barker presented a paper written together with Jakob Edler and Maria Karaulova (all from the University of Manchester) titled “The Impact of Scientific Knowledge on Policy: Conceptualising the Policy-Making Conditions” which presents a conceptual framework to understand the impact of scientific knowledge on the policy making process.
Kari-Elisabeth Vambeseth Skogen (Ph.D.-candidate at TIK) presented a systematic literature review of facilitators and barriers to research utilization in public policy organisations.
Finally, Silje Maria Tellmann presented a study of practices in public agencies R&D departments, written together with Magnus Gulbrandsen and Gry Cecilie Høiland (all from TIK).
Wrocław is Poland's fourth-largest city, and the University of Wroclaw is located in the beautiful old town of the city. The conference attracted more than 2000 scholars from around the world, and hosted nearly 500 panels across 70 sections.
