CSH researcher Marcia Ferreira will give her talk “Quantifying exaptation in scientific evolution” at the 5th Leiden-Utrecht Workshop on Measuring and Modelling Knowledge Production, Session 4 (“Scientific Knowledge Production”), which takes place on February 14, 2020 in Utrecht (NL).


The talk is based on research together with CSH scientists William Schueller, Niklas Reisz, Vito D. P. Servedio, Stefan Thurner, and Vittorio Loreto.



About the Workshop:


The Measuring and Modelling Knowledge Production Workshop aims to bring together researchers in the fields of Science and Innovation studies, Geography of Science and Innovation and Economic Geography, to understand patterns of production and diffusion of knowledge, ideas, and spill-overs.


The main goal of the workshop is to present and discuss forward-looking analytical methods and performance indicators for enhancing our understanding of science and innovation systems.

This 1-day academic workshop will be the fifth in a (bi)annual series organized by Center for Science and Technology Studies (Leiden University) and the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development (Utrecht University). Previous editions were held in 2014 (Utrecht), 2015 (Leiden), 2017 (Utrecht) and 2019 (Leiden).


The workshop will be structured around 4 sessions with 12 oral presentations of ongoing or recently completed research, interlaced with ample space for extended discussion and interaction.
