EGPA PSG on 'Public Administration, Technology & Innovation' seeks to develop a new research stream that brings together researchers and research topics in the fields of public administration and management (PAM), technology and innovation.
- The expected outcome of the PSG is a new network of researchers and long-term research projects that enable PAM scholarship to move closer to technology and innovation studies and respective policy fields.
- The PSG seeks to take PAM closer to new research fields while also bringing specific technology and innovation-related insights into the field of PAM.
- The PSG is aimed at adding value to the current stream of EGPA research and providing a bridge to take existing stock of PAM scholarship to new emerging research issues that are relevant both academically and from the point of view of practitioners.
The PSG fulfills its aims through an active scholarly network, high-level conferences and publications.
In April 2011 Tallinn University of Technology organized a high-level conference on Public Administration, Technology & Innovation bringing together interested scholars on the topic and initiating first actions of the PSG. See more on the conference: Halduskultuur/Administrative Culture.
The PSG was officially launched at the 2011 EGPA Conference in Bucharest followed by the 2nd official meeting at the 2012 EGPA Conference in Bergen.
The PSG has been initiated and is coordinated by the Tallinn University of Technology, Ragnar Nurkse School of Innovation and Governance. Contact: erkki dot karo at ttu dot ee.
