Event description

Description

This event will explore the themes behind a new publication from Palgrave Macmillan, Developmental Universities in Inclusive Innovation Systems: Alternatives for Knowledge Democratization in the Global South. This book analyses the current trends in the production, dissemination and use of knowledge which contribute to social inequalities, especially in the Global South. Two of the book’s co-authors will be present at this event:

  • Judith Sutz: Professor and Academic Coordinator of the University Research Council of the Universidad de le Republica, Uruguay, and SPRU's first Chris Freeman Fellow.

  • Roderigo Arocena: Professor in the Faculty of Sciences at the University of the Republic, Uruguay

These special guests will discuss the topics of their publication with Professor Luc Soete (Rector Magnificus Maastricht University), as well as representatives from SPRU’s faculty and student body. This is a unique chance to discuss and debate the arguments made in this book for the active involvement by universities in the democratization of knowledge, as well as research and development.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception, where copies of the book will be available to buy.
