Short bio

I hold a master's degree in political science from the University of Liège. As a PhD student, I investigate the research and innovation (R&I) policies in Belgium. Adopting a cognitive approach in policy analysis, I focus on the narratives that shape programs and individuals at different policy levels. I seek to point out the local enactment of ideas such as “regional competitiveness”, “innovation-led growth”, “Knowledge-based economy”, “responsible innovation”, and their impact on STI regimes. I am particularly interested in the variety of economic promises that policy narratives about R&I contain and propagate.
