New Currents in Science: The Challenges of Quality (via Digital Agenda for Europe)

Date:From Thursday, 3 March, 2016 - 01:00 to Friday, 4 March, 2016 - 01:00Add to CalendarAdd to calendariCalendar • Outlook • Google Yahoo Venue:ISPRA, ItalyContact{"service": "share","counter": false,"to": ["facebook","twitter","googleplus","linkedin","e-mail"]}The challenges originate from the previous transformation from community-based ‘little’ science to industrial-scale ‘big’ science, which had effects on research-incentives and thus commitment and morale. The present transformation, that we call ‘information-age’ science, has enabled new social practices and sources of commitment to emerge, both within and outside of established science, that offer new ways of resolving the challenges of quality assurance. • For those involved in maintaining existing streams of production, application and advice, some key questions are: By what methodologies could the existing institutions accommodate to the new tendencies, for their mutual benefit? • By what means, including dialogues and participation, could the new forms of practice be guided in the development of appropriate quality procedures? This workshop will be devoted to a review of these new tendencies, and to communication among them, exploring amongst others, how the insights of Post-Normal Science can contribute to their understanding and way out.
