Parallel Sessions V – 5.1: Scenario Workshop

May 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Wiebke Hoffmann, Stifterverband, Germany

„It’s not about dumbing down, it’s about opening up! The Team Puzzling Method and how it shapes researchers identities“

Recent global events underscore the need for collaboration in tackling complex challenges, yet barriers within the scientific community hinder widespread adoption of participatory research. Traditional norms depict researchers as solitary geniuses, impeding the shift towards collaborative models valuing collective intelligence. Embracing collaborative processes and diverse perspectives fosters personal transformation and societal change. However, establishing sustainable frameworks for inclusive research exchange remains a challenge. How can we navigate the complexities of diverse perspectives effectively? We propose an innovative, selectively transdisciplinary dialogue format bridging science and society to lower entry barriers for collaborative research. Our CRoSS Fellowship program exemplifies this approach, aiming to reshape research identities and promote mutual recognition and success. Through specific exercises, we’ll explore challenges and solutions in implementing participatory and transdisciplinary research methods.

Please notice that this workshop may not last the full 90 minutes.

Re:linking Results: Creative Pathways in a Complex Research Consortium 

De:link//Re:link explores the impacts of China’s Belt and Road Initiative on everything from language and culture to politics and economics in Asia and Africa. Areas studies document what is being gained and lost as a result of the infrastructure currently being constructed across continents. The De:link//Re:link research consortium consists of a complex architecture of university and non-university organisations, all of which work to communicate local perspectives to various audiences. Our poster presents how the interconnections between the partners enable the transfer of knowledge. We show how insights from field research can conveyed using formats such as podcasts, self-organised groups, and immersive installations. In this way, the results reach both specific audiences and the broader public via innovative pathways. As the first phase of funding of De:link//Re:link draws to a close, we also examine how the synergies of the approaches used in the project could be harnessed further in a potential second phase.
