The Governance of Innovation
The Governance of Innovation specialisation focuses on the rapid emergence of new and different technologies, and the challenges that arise from their integration into society.
Students will gain a systemic understanding of the economic, social, and political actors and structures that are impacted by new technologies, and develop skills to maximise their benefits and minimise social costs.
This specialisation covers the economic fundamentals of innovation, policy instruments, appropriate policy responses, and social impacts of new technologies. Theory is combined with practice, with opportunities to learn from recognised policymakers and staff from leading international organisations. Courses can also include field trips!
"It's not just about the technologies themselves, it's much more about actually how technology has an effect and how it can help us in the future." - Ross Mudie, student
