June 16, 2016

We are proud to announce that Cristiano Codagnone from Open Evidence holds the course  “From Nudge to Regulating Uber: Case studies in the Relation Between Science and Public Policy” at  the Faculty of Economics at the National University of Colombia, Cátedra Homero Cuevas. The course offers a critical retrospective of experience that is both based on the subject matter of the various policies (mostly ‘experience distant’) but also on the way evidence is used in policy making reconstructing the spontaneous and unaware experience and learning from interaction with policy makers and their stakeholders. The experience and objective of the course cover the following:

  • - Analyse how evidence is used in the policy making process;
  • - Based on solid epistemological and methodological underpinnings and on ‘near-experience’ knowledge;
  • - From nudge to the debate on Uber and the sharing economy;
  • - Considering innovation policy in general and digital innovation in particular;
  • - An epistemological, theoretical, and empirical journey into the controversial relation between science and power;
  • - With a critical eye, also on rhetorical discourses

The course covers a total of 40 hours and will be held from 27 June to the 9th of July 2016 in the Auditorio 1, Building 310 at the Faculty of Economics of the National University of Colombia. Registration is open from the 7th to 12th July via fce.unal.edu.co/chomerocuevas.
