WORLDWIDE VIRTUAL NETWORK OF YOUNG PRACTITIONERS WORKING ON SCIENCE AND SOCIETY
Posted by Jeroen on Wednesday, September 01 2004 @ 15:33:41 BST
News and announcements The WORLDWIDE VIRTUAL NETWORK OF YOUNG PRACTITIONERS WORKING ON SCIENCE AND SOCIETY ISSUES has opened a website.

The Virtual Network is one of the spin-offs of the International Workshop “Interfaces between Science and Society” held in Milano in November 27 - 28 2003. Given the interest of the Workshop and considering the notable participation of young researchers in the diverse topics discussed, the members of the KAM (JRC-EC) took the lead in implementing a Worldwide Virtual Network of Young Practitioners Working on Science and Society Issues. The main aim of the Virtual Network is to create a space for enhancing communication, discussion and collaboration mainly between researchers, but also with other groups of practitioners (e.g. NGOs, policy makers, media, etc.).

The inititiative was welcomed with enthousiasm and this enabled the creation of four working teams -organised in sections- and a Steering Committee composed by the coordinators of each section. For approximately four months volunteer collaborators have been working in the design and the production of materials for the Web Site, which has now been launched.

The Web Site of the Virtual Network is structured in the four following sections:

  • KNOWLEDGE, UNCERTAINTY, COMPLEXITY AND VALUES
  • COMMUNICATING AMONG PLURAL PERSPECTIVES AND COMMUNITY BASED RESEARCH
  • TRANSPARENCY, OPENNESS AND PARTICIPATION IN SCIENCE POLICY PROCESSES
  • EMERGING NEW STYLES OF GOVERNANCE AND ICT TOOLS
Each section has an area of News and Events, Commented Bibliography and Publications on-line, which is periodically updated.

In addition there is a Data Base of researchers working on Science and Society interfaces, an area of Links, and a Forum of discussion.

The address of the Virtual Network website is: http://alba.jrc.it/science-society/
Opinions, comments and suggestions about the site and about the Network itself are welcomed.
