In detail

There is a lot to do! Let's get started, fellow Early Career Researchers!  

Climate crisis, social contract, sustainable economies, emerging diseases, poverty, ... - we are facing complex challenges that demand new solutions or the translation of existing solutions into practice. They challenge us to leave behind one-dimensional patterns of thinking and practices in science, politics, and society.    

As early career researchers, we are the ones who want to shape change and be part of the solutions.  

What part of the solution to our complex challenges should and can science be? How can we, as early career researchers, contribute to a solution-oriented discourse in society grounded in diverse and sometimes contradictory evidence to replace a polarising culture war and shift the societal perspective to the numerous opportunities of forward-looking change?     

This seminar series will equip early career researchers and other interested individuals with knowledge about scholarly communication at the intersections of science, politics, and society. It will provide you with critical perspectives on the role of scientists in shaping our democracies through a series of distinguished speakers from various disciplines, countries, and organisations.  


The organisers 

This series is organised by a group of early career researchers from the Student Network for Open Science (funded and supported by the Berlin University Alliance), the Rhodes Scholars for Science Communication, Policy, and Engagement with Society, and the Master of Public Policy at the University of Oxford.
