About CPROST

CMNS FCAT

The Centre for Policy Research on Science and Technology (CPROST) was established in 1988 as an independent, self-supporting institute. It is linked to the School of Communication, within the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology at Simon Fraser University. CPROST is an academic centre devoted to policy studies on science, technology, and innovation (STI). CPROST brings together practitioners and scholars to study the interaction of advances in STI, their implementation in the marketplace, and their impacts on community and individual interests.

Faculty and students at CPROST work within a multi-disciplinary framework on technology-based problems that have ongoing implications. The Centre has developed work on policy for federal and provincial governments on science, technology, research and development, and innovation in the Canadian context and throughout the world.
