Academic research is under threat from issues like a lack of resources, fraud, and societal isolation. Such issues weaken the academic research process, from the framing of research questions to the evaluation of impact. After (re)defining this process, we examine how the academic research community could be expanded using the Internet. We examine two existing science-society collaborations that focus on data collection and analysis and then proceed with a scenario that covers expanding research stages like research question framing, dissemination, and impact assessment.

  • 1. Expanding the Academic Research Community: Building Bridges into Society with the Internet Aldo de Moor CommunitySense WWW.COMMUNITYSENSE.NL Honors Lecture UAH, 29 August 2013
  • 2. Outline  Research communities  Research 2.0  Collaboration systems  Applications
  • 3. Research communities nothing new
  • 4. What are communities?  Communities  Strong, lasting interactions  Ties between members  “Sense of community”  Common space  Common space  Physical/digital  Spectrum of communicative & collaborative functionalities  (“from face-to-face to Facebook”)  “Ecosystems” of people and technologies  Great diversity
  • 5. Communities connect • Communities increasingly important as form of collaboration and organization • They break down barriers and connect – Cultures, ways of thinking and working – Goals – Organizations and departments – Work and communication processes – Information systems and tools
  • 6. Collaborative communities  Communities of interest, practice  Collaborative communities  Common goals  Effective/efficient communication  Executing/coordinating work  Community governance: roles and processes
  • 7. • Formulating goals and characteristics of a new community • Aligning community with organizational goals and related communities • Creating, configuring, and maintaining "community spaces“ (physical and online) • Creating (initial) content • Defining and populating required roles • Activating members • Facilitating discussions • Resolving conflicts • Evaluating community activities • Cancelling a (sub)communtiy Community management not trivial
  • 8. Research communities on the Internet
  • 9. Collaboratories
  • 10. Outline  Research communities  Research 2.0  Collaboration systems  Applications

  • 26. Social innovation “With all stakeholders jointly find sustainable solutions to societally relevant problems” Developer network Stakeholder network C1 C2 C4 C5 User network C3
  • 27. The social innovation process 28 Source: http://www.nesta.org.uk/library/documents/Social_Innovator_020310.pdf Research Communities 2.0
  • 28. Conclusions • Research process in transition. Redefinition of concepts: academic, fundamental, applied research • Community-based research is a cornerstone • Research communities 2.0: new forms of – collaboration – stakeholder roles – (use of) digital and physical technologies • Developing socio-technical collaboration systems does not happen “just like that”…
