SCIENCE IN THE EYE OF THE STORM Workshop
Today science mainly focuses on technological innovations and efficiency to tackle the grand challenges of society – climate change, decrease of resources, urbanization etc. More societal actors are needed in order to have a cultural change towards sustainability. Changes in the scientific system towards more participatory and transparent structures and involvement of civil society are required.
