Irene Ramos-Vielba has been a Research Fellow at INGENIO (CSIC-UPV) since April 2015.

Her current research focuses on factors underlying the generation of scientific and societal impacts of academic research and on scientific researchers' interactions with non-academic actors (EXTRA project).

Irene graduated in Political Science and Sociology at the Complutense University in Madrid, where she obtained her Ph.D. in the same fields in 2003.

She has a large experience as a researcher in different research institutions. She was a Visiting Scholar at the Real Colegio Complutense, Harvard University (1999 & 2000), at the Ostrom Workshop, Indiana University Bloomington (2004-2006) and at the Centre for Industry and Innovation Studies, University of Western Sydney (2009). She also worked at the Research Institute for Work, Technology and Culture (F.A.T.K.), University of Tübingen (Germany) (2014-2015), with which she continues collaborating.

In Spain she was a Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Social Studies, Spanish National Research Council (IESA-CSIC) (2007-2009), and at the political think tank Ideas Foundation (2009-2013).

The combination of both research and policy in her career trajectory has provided her with insights into innovation policy questions as both a producer and user of academic knowledge. In her experience at a policy level, she worked on participatory processes with government institutions, party members, scholars, consultants, private entities and grassroots organizations.

Among her areas of research, she mainly conducted research on science and innovation policy, university-industry interactions and knowledge transfer processes. Dissemination accomplishments in the science policy domain comprises articles published in journals including Science and Public Policy, The Journal of Technology Transfer, Higher Education and Scientometrics

Additionally, as an expert on national research and innovation policies for the European Commission, Irene has co-authored the RIO Country Reports - Spain 2016 & 2017.
She has also participated in the 2017 evaluation of proposals submitted to the ‘Co-creation for growth and inclusion’ call, within the H2020 Societal Challenge 6, for the European Commission.

Irene has been an Academic Research Visitor at the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MIoIR), Alliance Manchester Business School, The University of Manchester over the Autumn term 2018.
