The focus of the Standing Group Politics and Technology lies on the systematic relations of different levels of government (e.g. regional, national and European) with technological change and innovation.

The Standing Group provides an European resource of scholars for collaboration

  • to pool and coordinate research activities and publication strategies
  • to exchange ideas (including aspects of ongoing research activities)
  • and to develop new ones (activities planned by individual researchers are presented in early project stages)

via meetings, workshops, newsletters or e-mail discussions.
