Visions, Needs And Requirements For (Future) Research Environments: An Exploration Series with Science Fiction-Authors

  • By Katharina Flicker

As partner of the project consortium EOSCSecretariat, TU Wien is responsible for Researcher Engagement. This task comprised the organization of workshops, consultations and an Exploration Series consisting of interviews with top-level researchers and academics who are also successful SciFi-authors. The key objectives were to collect input from stakeholders, to reach out to researchers and their communities via multipliers and testimonials as well as to cover various scientific domains, all while considering a variety of perspectives, geographic spread and gender balance.

We are now pleased to share the final Report on “Visions, needs and requirements for (future) Research Environments: An Exploration Series with Science Fiction Authors”. Topics covered during the discussions include competition and collaboration, the re-establishment of trust in technologies, research practices and positions of power, monopolies and oligopolies as well as strategies to support pluralism within research systems, education and science communication. The report concludes with a summary of crucial discussion points, suggested services and potential solutions.

This report will be distributed among the EOSC Association and various stakeholders such as researchers, members of university networks and funding bodies, thus providing input in the ongoing development processes of the EOSC.

Please share the report, and / or contact us with questions, suggestions and ideas.
