Manchester Institute of Innovation Research to welcome EU-SPRI funded research visitor

Welcome to Maria Stadler, starting her circulation visit at the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research.

Maria Stadler

Maria Stadler will be joining MIOIR for 3 months from 6 March 2023 to carry out a research visit, supervised by Professor Elvira Uyarra. The circulation visit is funded by the European Forum for Studies of Policies for Research and Innovation (EU-SPRI) Network.

Maria is a third-year PhD student enrolled at the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, Germany. Her PhD Project aims to link insights from urban sociology, transition studies and innovation studies to analyse changes in urban governance directed towards more sustainable urban systems in response to climate change.

During her stay at MIoIR, her work will focus on urban level policy making for knowledge creation and innovation and address questions on the roles of cities and local governments in relation to globalized problems. Maria’s research interests are to gain insights into the role that social innovations and governance innovations on the urban level might play for addressing grand challenges. Moreover, the visit allows her to compare empirical findings from a German city (city of Mannheim) with insights from Manchester.

Manchester Institute of Innovation Research hosts visiting researchers from EU-SPRI member organisations under the early career and PhD researcher mobility programme, which is part of the development of the European Training Platform. It addresses the objective of offering a European pathway to Early Career and PhD researchers in the area of science and innovation policy studies.
