‘International Scientific Collaboration: Knowledge Infrastructures and the
Role of STS Scholars’ (Open Panel 93)


International scientific collaborations play an increasingly important role
in efforts to address global challenges. This gives rise to numerous
questions about the structures of international scientific collaborations,
and about how these are changing scientific work.

Which forms of international scientific collaboration can we for instance
identify? And how are these collaborations situated within the broader
context of scientific endeavour? What do we know about the social,
organizational and political dynamics of international scientific
collaborations? What kind of stakeholders are for example involved in these
collaborations? And which organizational frameworks do they for instance
employ to deal with specific coordination challenges tied to international
scientific collaboration? What are scientists’ practical experiences with
international scientific collaboration? And how do these relate to the way
their work is organized?

How could the social, organizational and political dynamics of
international scientific collaboration be studied best? Which methods
should be employed? Last but not least: what might be ideas to improve
knowledge infrastructures and international scientific collaboration? And
what could and/or should be the role of STS scholars in a process of
designing knowledge infrastructures and/or facilitating international
scientific collaboration?

Keywords: International Scientific Collaboration, Knowledge
Infrastructures, Global Challenges, Science Organization, Role of STS
Scholars
