On October 1-2, ICD researcher Dylan Wood is an invited guest of the German Research Foundation (DFG) as part of the ‘Next Generation Research’ Workshop.

The workshop brings together representatives from science, society, business and culture, to discuss a vision of how research will develop in 20 years, explicitly focusing on the creative potential of science. It will look at the major social, ethical and ecological challenges of the coming decades from different perspectives and consider what contribution science can make to meeting them constructively and sustainably. The background is on the one hand the foreseeable technological progress and its effects on scientific (collaborative) work, and on the other hand the principles of good scientific practice in digital change. The aim is to consider which new opportunities for good science are offered by digital change and how they can be shaped in a responsible and future-oriented way.

The workshop will conclude with a public panel discussion on the perspective of universities, non-university research institutions and research funding institutions on the future of science and its design possibilities.

The event is part of the “Digital Change in the Sciences and Humanities” project, which the DFG Head Office has been running since 2017. For more information see Digitaler Wandel in den Wissenschaften.
