Professor Achibuigi also gave a talk on “Polices to foster innovative investment”, based on his joint work with Marion Frenz and Andrea Filippetti, at the Scientific Workshop on Transforming Innovation Policy, organized by Innovative Firms Forum, Madrid, 25 April 2017.

Dr Rebecca Gumbrell-McCormick travelled to two Central European countries to discuss trade unions in Europe at the end of August – early September. In Budapest, she was an invited expert for an international training session on Trade Unions and Democracy, organized by the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI). Over 20 trade unionists from throughout Europe took part in this three-day session, where Rebecca talked about her research on trade unions and Europe, with a special focus on the recent democratization of the Dutch confederation, FNV. This session was related to her school research grant, to develop trade union training with the ETUI. In Warsaw, she took part in the annual IREC (Industrial Relations in Europe) Conference, and discussed her prospective new research on disability.
