The global pandemic has accelerated technology uptake on an unprecedented scale, bringing offices to our homes, and taking education fully online. As the global community recovers and adapts to a connectivity-driven post-pandemic economy, we are presented with new opportunities and challenges in transforming Europe's technology and innovation ecosystem. As technological advances, digital disruptions, and volatile political developments converge to shape Europe's future, major stakeholders, particularly universities, governments, and industry, will all play critical roles in adapting to these transformations. There has never been a more pressing time to systematically review and evaluate past and ongoing efforts in shaping and strengthening Europe's innovation ecosystem.

To inform this timely debate, Taltech Journal of European Studies (TJES), with guest editor Dr Nikita SW Chiu, is inviting research articles (5000-8000 words) for review to be published in a special issue on Technology Governance. The special issue particularly welcomes submissions on, but not limited to, the following interdisciplinary topics:

- University-Industry-Government collaborations for Innovation
- The Role of University in Strengthening Regional Innovation Capability
- Global and Regional Technology Policy
- The Governance of Emerging Technologies
- Innovation Ecosystem

- Intersectoral Knowledge Transfer
- Inter-regional/continental Technology Collaborations (e.g. North America-Europe)


Interested authors are advised to submit their manuscripts
SpecialIssueInnovationTJES@protonmail.com by 30 April 2022. Prospective authors should refer to the style guide of TJES in developing their manuscripts. All submissions will go through international peer-review, and the special edition is envisioned to be published in the autumn of 2022. Informal enquiries on the special issue may be posed to the guest editor at SpecialIssueInnovationTJES@protonmail.com
