‘International Scientific Consortia: Knowledge Infrastructures and the Role of STS Scholars’ (Open Panel 107)

International scientific consortia play an ever more central role in efforts to address global challenges such as how to respond to major health emergencies, the development of new, clean sources of energy, and how to preserve our environment. This has given rise to numerous questions about the structures of international scientific consortia, and about how these are changing scientific work. Which are the different types of organisational forms that these consortia adopt? And how are these consortia situated within the broader context of the scientific endeavour? What do we know about the social, organizational, and political dynamics of international scientific consortia? What kind of stakeholders are involved? And which organisational frameworks are used to deal with specific coordination challenges tied to international scientific consortia? What are scientists’ practical experiences with international scientific consortia? And how do these relate to underlying knowledge infrastructures?

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

Keywords: International scientific collaborations, research consortia, organisation of science
