Drawing from a PRTLI funded project examining the management of scientific and technical capital in university research centres, the paper explores the career trajectories and experiences of research scientists. In so doing it made a clear contribution to the conference theme; “Social Science Research and Policy Making: Bridging the Divide”.

DCUBS Ph.D. candidates Jason Flynn and John Brogan also made presentations at the conference, while Teresa Hogan was track chair for the knowledge and society stream.
