Collaboration and communication of results in a cumulative science


Since the beginning of the pandemic, the communication of research results to the outside world in a way that is understandable to the lay public has been gaining attention.
But what aspects should be considered for communicating results and sharing about them within science? And what kind of research collaboration should science mean in general?
We want to ask these and related questions together, trying to work out what constitutes and should constitute the process of science at the moment.

This event will take place as a discourse. That means we want to think together with the participants how we should communicate results within science and decide on future research steps based on them.

Keywords we will deal with are, among others, collaboration, cumulative knowledge process, transparency, mutual exchange and the relevance of different opinions.
