New virtual network for young researchers working on science and society issues

October 22, 2004

Brussels, 21 Oct 2004

A virtual network for young practitioners working on science and society issues has been launched - a direct outcome of a European Commission and Joint Research Centre (JRC) conference held in November 2003.

The network acts not only as a platform for researchers working on science and society issues, but as a forum for exchanging information on interests, events and relevant literature. The network will eventually be extended beyond the research community to non-governmental organisations (NGOs), policy makers and the media.

The network's website is divided into four sections:
- knowledge, uncertainty, legitimacy and values;
- communicating among plural perspectives and Community based research;
- transparency, openness and participation in science policy processes
- emerging new styles of governance and ICT [information and communication technologies].

Each division has news and events sections, as well as a list of relevant publications. There is also a database of young researchers working this area and a forum for discussion. To access the network's website, please visit: http:///
