Special Interest Group (SIG): Post-Normal takes on Science, Technology and Policy for Sustainability
Invitation to participate in the meeting about Post-normal science (PNS). Presenter for the SIG session in November is David Budtz Pedersen & Rolf Hvidtfeldt.
25.11.2021 kl. 15.30 - 17.00
Post-normal science (PNS) is a paradigm that helps researchers, civil servants, decision-makers, consultants and practitioners navigate situations with high levels of uncertainty and decision stakes, where values are in dispute and action is urgent.
Consequently, multiple perspectives on scientific processes in post normal contexts and the involvement of extended peer communities (EPCs) is called for. In post-normal science, extended peer communities may comprise all stakeholders effected by potential action.
The purpose of this SIG is to explore and critically reflect upon the existing and emergent PNS knowledge-base, and to create a forum for sharing PNS related insights, experiences, ideas and inspiration.
The last Thursday of the month.
Approximately 1.5 hours
Topics for the SIG meetings will be announced from session to session.
Presenters for the SIG session on November 25 are David Budtz Pedersen & Rolf Hvidtfeldt
