Matias Ramirez

Welcome. I work at the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex. My research has been on topics related to the study of knowledge, innovation and networks. My most recent research has focused on inclusive innovation in Latin America and policy making in science and technology agricultural systems. I am involved in the Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium (TIPC) project that brings together national policy makers from a range of countries interested in transformations in STI. Other projects include an analysis of intermediaries in emerging agricultural clusters, the formation and functioning of communities of practice between knowledge workers and scientists and the relationship between labour mobility and learning. A summary of my research activities and publications are on the tabs above. Below are links to blogs, comments and recent activities.  Do get in touch if have any comments by emailing me on and twitter @MatiasRamirez50.
