Science & Innovation policy research hub seeking content; EDQ call for papers on rural economic development

May 16, 2019

The Fung Institute at the University of California Berkeley, with funding support from the National Science Foundation, has established a website to serve as a centralized hub for finding research papers, analyses, and case studies on science and innovation policy. Papers to be included may develop models, analytical tools, data, and metrics to enable science and innovation policymakers and TBED practitioners to improve the impacts derived from public investments and policy interventions. 

Research papers are sorted by five categories: business, economics, policy, science, and technology. Site visitors also can find works by investigator, tags, affiliated organization, publication status, and key word.  Information for submitting materials to help populate the hub are available on the homepage of the site:

Economic Development Quarterly (EDQ) is seeking research manuscript proposals that will contribute to the understanding of the economic challenges and opportunities facing rural areas.  Authors of the selected proposals will be invited to share their complete research findings at a two-day conference hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, and Citizens Research Council of Michigan in spring 2020 in Grand Rapids, MI.  In addition, the presented manuscripts will be eligible for consideration for publication in an EDQ special issue on rural economic development planned for August 2021.

Full details on the call for papers can be found here:
