The independent evaluation found that most BAS institutes perform valuable research by international standards and in some cases research groups operate at the forefront worldwide. Throughout the process a format for interaction had been chosen that emphasised the strategic forward-looking elements in the review.
Forty leading researchers from Academies, research performing organizations and universities in 17 countries, had worked in four panels, accumulating several thousand contact hours with researchers at all levels of careers during 10 days of site visits in July An ALLEA Working Group Evaluating for Science will meta-review the use of the Self-Evaluation Protocol in this exercise and will suggest ways to simplify the reporting in the future, while at the same time including elements of evaluations that will better allow to analyse the societal impact of the research evaluated.
BAS Evaluation Report2. The Strategic Plan, debated during day 2 and 3 of the gathering, envisages ALLEA as a prime resource for expert analysis and advice to science policy stakeholders inside and beyond Europe in all matters relating to the many interfaces of scientific progress and societal needs. Presentation of meeting restricted; for members only. Emerging Trends and cutting-edge issues. Elsewhere, the report notes that a lot of discussions on science in society are based around the question of what place science should have in society.
This debate should continue, and experiments should be carried out to address tensions in this area, the experts recommend. At the same time, science is increasingly thinking about its role and impacts. On the issue of the governance of science in society, the authors note that new forms of governance are emerging. These include discussions on responsible development, the growing importance of ethics and codes of conduct, and experiments with public engagement. One part of the science in society debate revolves around human resources. Women continue to be under-represented in many areas of science, while many bright young people are choosing not to go into research careers.
The symposium was held as a pre-forum meeting to prepare discussions during the World Science Forum in Budapest at the Hungarian Patent Office. The symposium programme and the presentations given during the symposium can be seen here. But without them humankind has no future. The proper use of these tools requires foresight, responsibility and ethics. Scientist creating, disseminating and using knowledge has to play a role model to assume responsibility for the future.
The ALLEA Working Group Science Education aims to link up with the efforts taken forward both nationally and internationally in science and mathematics education, and to connect also with the neighbouring field of technology education. The workshop was held with support from Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, who hosted the meeting, and acatech, the German Academy of Science and Engineering. It brought together international experts from different nations and disciplines to present and discuss their ideas.
Participants also identified, topics, experiences and research results about innovative approaches and challenges related to public education programs in science and technology. Please click here to download the programme of the meeting. As the first scientific in-depth evaluation of the research units of the 69 research units of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences is completed a public debate is triggered. During a pre-publication public debate on the issue of research evaluation, the hall of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences attracted an audience of several hundreds, scientists, general public, policy makers and media alike.
High-level recommendations of the evaluation report2. The objective of the meeting was to serve as a platform for MOs to exchange information on good practice, to support and encourage those organisations which did not have appropriate structures to develop such structures, to learn from others and initiate debates in their respective communities, and to channel European input to the Second World Conference on Research IntegrityALLEA Honorary President Pieter Drenth presented the work of the European Working Group leading up to the formulation of a Code of Conduct during the meeting.
ALLEA had been preparing the European Code of Conduct, as part opf its contributions to the work of the MO Forum, in the course of , notably through a consultative workshop with all Member Academies in Berne and the provision of substantial amounts of background material on research integrity. The presentations given at this workshop and background documents are available here. The envisaged guidelines seek to simplify and, at the same time render more meaningful evaluations as part of a continuous improvement and performance enhancing process, in which the ability to develop credible forward looking strategies are as important as retrospective assessments.
The meeting put the final touches to a draft that will be discussed with Member Academies and other stakeholders in the coming months. The Working Group also agreed to develop some work on the following themes:- guidelines for scientific output of Social Science and Humanities research- measures to asses societal impact of basic research- parameters for university rankings.
Meeting Programme2. Background documents on the work of the Working Group3. Restricted working website for Working Group members only. During the conference, stakeholders from public and private research organisations debated the future of the European Research Area. This conference explored many implications of these and other drivers on researchers and the research system in Europe and the world over the next 20 years. Topics on the extensive programme included new research funding frameworks in Europe e.
The symposium explored possibilities to reduce the contribution of fossil fuels to the global energy system until Current scenarios of future climate change indicate enormous social and economic consequences for global societies. The major potential for changes in energy supply up to are to be found in the already established technologies such as hydropower, wind power, nuclear energy and bio-energy. An emerging renewable source with great potential is solar energy. In parallel to a shift to non-fossil energy supply, a radically more efficient use of energy needs to be achieved.
Increased use of electricity, not least in the transport sector, and more effective heating and cooling of buildings are key elements. One conference goal was to provide a message UN Climate Change Conference, Copenhagen in December , at which a post-Kyoto action plan will be discussed. Following the symposium, the Swedish Energy Agency supported by the European Commission will arrange a conference on The target groups are European actors in the innovation system for energy technology — financial community, industry, customers, public policy makers, representatives of the European institutions and international partners.
During the last forty years, a variety of explanatory, exploratory, and metaphorical models of the science system have been used in a number of different fields. By integrating empirical data, visualization and modeling standards and tools, and different modes of interpretation and critical reflection, the workshop provided an international opportunity for the exchange and diffusion of this expert knowledge about the inner dynamics of scholarly activities in a variety of fields. The workshop helped to mobilize new possibilities to measure and visualize scholarly activities as point of departure for more advanced explanatory tools quantitative as well as qualitative.
Within the domain of possible explanations of the dynamics and mechanisms of knowledge production, emphasis was placed on exploring the potential of mathematical models and simulations. The workshop could build on a rich scholarly landscape in the Netherlands of studying science and scholarly activities. By bringing together experts on modeling, measuring, visualizing, and analyzing scholarly activities, new insights were won into basic mechanisms of scholarly activities; at the same time, the limits and possibilities of modeling for explanation and forecasting were explored.
The colloquium functioned as a starting point for the further development of computational practices in science studies. The workshop was deliberately designed as platform for the launch of a novel interdisciplinary discourse on modeling science and contribute to research efforts at the boundaries between natural, computer and information sciences and social sciences and humanities.
The conference was launched against the background of a number of analytical statements. While the key role of science and technology for economic growth and social welfare are acknowledged, knowledge production and its embeddings in innovation products and services do not automatically guarantee well-being and social harmony. Interrelations between science and society, the state and economy, high technology and business are non-linear and multiple-valued processes that exist in the complex interweaving of interests, purposes, and perspectives.
Scientific and technological developments bring about new local and global threats as well as ethical challenges. It is the responsibility of the state to draw up a balanced policy under any given constraints, be they limited budgets, competition in national and global markets, high replacement rates of products and services etc. The state as public regulator needs to reduce, as far as possible, the negative implications of technological change, and ensure a balance of interests of the different actors business circles, innovation agents, scientific community, consumers of science intensive products and services.
Basic science, as principal supplier of new knowledge, plays a paramount role in maintaining growth across all developed economies. Strengthening basic science requires vision and a strong governance of knowledge potentials: this includes both the provision of research with physical and financial resources and the reproduction of research personnel ensuring that top skills remain available and able to generate new ideas and knowledge. Here, the systems of science and higher education intersect: the HE system is not only the original medium from which science historically sprung but also a long-term supplier of high-skilled and trained labour for science.
The relations between basic and applied research as well as development are far from unambiguous. Often, advances in applied fields give an impetus to new trajectories in basic research. Yet, work on applied problems may require new basic results for their solution, which in turn stimulates demand for basic research. Lastly, also scientists engaged in applied research and development often author basic discoveries. There is no simple causality between innovation and basic knowledge either: innovations may be spawned at any stage of a given research process.
The greater the innovation activity of an economy the higher is the demand for new knowledge and the greater the density of innovations distributed over the different research stages.
