getting to the point.


My research focus is in the field of science and society and methodologically appropriate in inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation, as well as in the research, design and evaluation of participative procedures. Public engagement is at the centre of attention. This is also in line with the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation.
