Open Science, Collaboration and Participation in Energy System Research

Open Energy Modelling has been built up as a research community over the last ten years aiming to bring transparency to the field using an array of Open Science methods for the planning of energy systems. The role of collaboration in the research cycle used by scientists in this engineering community is now an established Open Science practice. Similar practices of collaboration and participation outside of academia involving the public are still in their infancy. Harnessing public participation in energy planning and policy development is likely change as the energy sector is undergoing rapid changes due to its large contribution to greenhouse gases and the consequent demands for transparency and innovation to tackle climate change.

Citizen Science: Interview mit Dr. Katrin Vohland über Vorteile, Barrieren und Entwicklung bürgerbeteiligter Forschung

Dr. Katrin Vohland ist Citizen-Science-Expertin am Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin. Sie ist unter anderem Teil der Projektleitung der deutschen Citizen-Science-Plattform „Bürger schaffen Wissen“ sowie Executive Chair der europäischen Allianz ECSA (European Citizen Science Association). Im Interview erläutert sie die aktuelle und zukünftige Rolle von Citizen Science im Wissenschaftssystem und zeigt die Potentiale auf, die in der Partizipation der Zivilgesellschafft stecken, aber auch welche Barrieren noch zu überwinden sind. Welchen Bezug haben Sie zu Citizen Science? Zu Citizen Science bin ich persönlich über die Biodiversitätsforschung gekommen. Wir haben uns damit beschäftigt, wie die ehrenamtlichen Naturforschenden besser unterstützt werden können, und […]


Science 2.0: Chance oder lästiges Übel?

Ein tiefgreifender Veränderungsprozess oder altes Denken mit neuen Tools? Wie sehen Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler die Auswirkungen von Science 2.0?
