Panel 107 – Articulaciones sociales de las agendas científicas globales – #CLASCO2022

Tuesday June 07, 2022 – 14:30 a 16:30 hs | Facultad de Economía – UNAM [Salón multimedia 2]
Organiza: GT Ciencia y sociedad

Desde hace algunos decenios que las agendas científicas han adquirido un sentido global, sea por su estructura, sus fuentes de financiación o los desafíos complejos a las que están volcadas. Para ello las agendas desarrollan un conjunto de articulaciones con agentes heterogéneos y diferentes escalas. En este sentido resulta interesante indagar en los tipos de articulación con agentes sociales que provocan las agendas globales de investigación científica, sistemas nacionales o regionales de producción de conocimiento científico, normativas e institucionalidad científica, agentes sociales y étnicos y la consideración del territorio como un agente de producción de conocimiento.

2022 EASST Conference

July 6-9, 2022
Madrid

CONFERENCE THEME
Politics of Technoscientific Futures

Recent years have been marked by uncertainty and instability, as the pandemic continues to disrupt lives and communities, transactions and supply chains, customs and rituals. Possible pathways to what we once called the future seem to open and close rapidly from one moment to the next. Constellations of rights and responsibilities – and sites of jurisdiction for defining them – shift daily in relation to new knowledge claims and accompanying uncertainties. Calls to seize the opportunity presented by this crisis abound across projects of techno-political transformation: Can we maintain the dramatic reduction of CO2 emissions that we witnessed during the height of the pandemic? Can scientists harness public optimism from vaccine breakthroughs and help quickly implement projects of bioeconomic transformation? Will this new perspective legitimate funding and creation of more public goods such as enlarged public green spaces and cycling infrastructures? Will governments and the private sector seize the opportunity to collaborate in creating new biopolitical regimes of data collection, knowledge, and control?

20TH GENDER SUMMIT LAC 2021: Enhancing scientific excellence to improve quality, equity, and societal relevance, of research outcomes

September 15-23, 2021
Brazil. Online event

VIRTUAL – Due to COVID-19 GS20 will now be held in virtual format.

Background
The socio-economic and environmental challenges facing societies today put new pressure and expectations on science to produce more relevant and reliable knowledge to protect their wellbeing, and of the natural ecosystems they depend on. A 2010 report by science leaders identified important risk to quality of research outcomes caused by historical gaps and biases in scientific evidence and knowledge created by a persistent tendency of researchers to adopt ‘male’ as the norm in health and behaviour research. Furthermore, studies have often omitted reporting details of the biological and/or socio-cultural characteristics of the studied population, which has contributed to the non-reproducibility crisis in research. Since 2013, the European Union has adopted in its flagship research programmes: Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe, the policy to promote the integration of gender dimension in research and innovation.
