Intellectually, Prof. Nedeva's research is about science dynamics; more specifically it is about ‘policy driven’ change affecting both the social conditions of science and research (organisations, relationships and rules of exchange; structures etc.) and their intellectual conditions. The notion (theory) of science as a relationship between research fields and research spaces, that Prof. Nedeva is developing provides an intellectual lens for the analysis of the links between the social and the intellectual conditions of science and research; between policy and knowledge with particular epistemic properties.Within this broad intellectual agenda, Prof. Nedeva has contributed in substance to debates along four research lines, namely:
  • Research organisations (universities, research establishments and research networks), policy and pressures for change; 
  • Academy industry links;
  • Research funders, selection and support of research
  • Research policy, evaluation and impact
