The Science Policy Research Unit at the University of Sussex was founded in 1966 by Christopher Freeman, a pioneer of what is now known as innovation studies; it was one of the first interdisciplinary research centres in the field of science and technology policy, economics, and management. Today, with over 50 faculty members, SPRU remains at the forefront of new ideas and problem-orientated research addressing pressing global policy agendas, including the future of industrial policy, inclusive economic growth, the politics of scientific expertise, energy policy, security issues, entrepreneurship, and pathways to a more sustainable future. The SPRU Working Paper Series aims to accelerate the public availability of research undertaken by members and associated fellows of SPRU, as well as other relevant research on science, technology and innovation by providing access to early research outputs.
