The Christopher Freeman Memorial Lecture and CSSP's students, New Delhi

CSSP, the Centre for Studies in Science Policy, is a vibrant centre in the developing countries context and situated at India's leading university, JNU.

It is the home, before SPRU, Chris Freeman's academic home, of the Memorial Christopher Freeman Lecture series. Unique to CSSP is that this is a largely student-initiated invitation to hear the latest in innovation thinking relevant to development. First Christopher Freeman Memorial Lecture: Prof. Mammo Muchie (2015); Second Christopher Memorial Lecture: Prof. Amit S. Ray (2016); Third Christopher Memorial Lecture: Prof. Smita Srinivas (2017).
