Identifying and Measuring Value(s) in Regenerative Medicine and Translational Research & Dimensions of Value and Values Science, Technology and Innovation Studies
A Two Day Symposium and Advanced Training for Postgraduate Research Students
University of Edinburgh
April 17 – 18 2013
A two day symposium and advanced training that was for postgraduate researchers at the University of Edinburgh, organised by the ESRC Innogen Centre on behalf of the Science, Technology and Innovation Studies pathway of the Scottish Graduate School in Social Science, and in collaboration with the White Rose Social Science Doctoral Training Centre. The symposium brought together contributors from a broad range of scholars in science, technology and innovation studies that have, through both theoretical work and range of empirical case studies, explored the complexities and nuances of both economic, financial and commercial value; and broader socio-political values. The symposium took place over two days, with keynote presentations on the first day followed by dedicated advanced training for PGR students on the second. The aim was to bring together a variety of scholars and students with an interest in this increasingly important topic to advance understanding of how value and values may be identified, critically explored and measured by social scientists.
