CSRN+, the University's New Research Network Is Introduced

In cooperation with the Robert Jungk Library and the Province of Salzburg (Salzburg 2050), PLUS presented its new research network CSRN+ on 6 November. The network, which stands for "Climate Change and Sustainability Research Network PLUS", has over 50 members whose research focuses on climate change, environmental protection and sustainability.

Zunächst stellte Isabell Uhl, Koordinatorin des Netzwerkes, bei ausgebuchtem Haus die Bandbreite an Forschungsprojekten vor.  Mensch und Umwelt gelten als Fokus, beteiligt sind daher Natur- und Gesellschaftswissenschaften. Ziel sei die Vernetzung und Nutzung von Synergien innerhalb der Universität zu fördern, aber auch den Dialog mit der Öffentlichkeit zu forcieren.

Im Anschluss präsentierten Gabriele Spilker (Politikwissenschaften), Stefan Kienberger (Geoinformatik), Ursula Eisendle-Flöckner (Zellbiologie), Robert Junker (Ökologie & Evolution) und Cornelia Hahn (Soziologie) ihre Forschung – und zwar auf originelle Weise nach der Pecha Kucha-Methode. Alle Referierende konnten anhand von 20 Folien, die jeweils 20 Sekunden eingeblendet waren, ihre Arbeit präsentieren.

In einem anschließenden Worldcafe diskutierten die Teilnehmenden zur Frage, wie Forschung und Politik, Wirtschaft und Zivilgesellschaft (noch besser) in Dialog treten können und was sie von einander erwarten. Eine erfolgreiches Kick-Off, dem hoffentlich noch viele weitere interessante Kooperationen, Forschungsprojekte und Veranstaltungen folgen.
