Centres de recherche universitaires
Founded in 1989, the Centre for the Study of Democracy (CSD) is a leading postgraduate teaching and research centre at the University of Westminster. Led by team of internationally renowned scholars, CSD has become a major player, both nationally and globally, in the fields of international relations, political theory and cultural studies. The CSD events programme regularly hosts major international guest speakers and contributors from academia and public life. The Annual CSD Encounter, the fortnightly CSD Seminar, as well as the various conferences and workshops attract a wide audience, including academics, policy-makers, civil society actors and media representatives. For example, the CSD Politics of Science, Technology and the Environment seminar programme draws attention to contemporary political issues associated with science, technology and the environment. Unless otherwise indicated, the seminars comprise a 45-minute presentation followed by a discussion with the audience.

L’INRA met en oeuvre, dans le cadre de son programme de recherche « Science et gouvernance », des dispositifs permettant d’associer à sa réflexion les acteurs concernés de près ou de loin par les applications de ses recherches. Utilisant la méthode d’évaluation technologique interactive (ETI), une expérience pilote a été initiée en mai 2001 au cas des « vignes transgéniques » sous la conduite de Pierre-Benoît Joly : « Quand le vigneron, le profane et le chercheur délibèrent sur les questions de recherche : une expérience pilote sur les vignes transgéniques »
- University of Wollongong (Faculty of Arts) and University of Adelaide (School of history and politics): Big Picture Bioethics
Chercheurs principaux: Susan Dodds (UOW)et Rachel Ankeny (UOA)
This project goes beyond typical approaches in bioethics to explore the 'big picture': how policies are generated in ethically-contentious domains. The public often provides input during policy debates, and how public values and those of other stakeholders are reflected involves a complex negotiation process that is social, ethical, legal, and political.
This project examines three contentious policy-development processes, using historical, legal, and ethical analysis to assess the interrelations between values and policy development in Australia with comparison to Canada, which has parallels in these areas of policy. The benefits to be gained from this research will most importantly take the form of practical recommendations for refining public involvement in healthcare policy-making, in accordance with both Australia's and Canada's commitments to fostering liberal democratic societies.
The interdisciplinary research platform “Life-Science-Governance” (LSG) will address the interrelated topics of governance through and of the life sciences. The Max F. Perutz Laboratories, a joint venture of the University of Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna, together with other research institutions at the Vienna Biocenter are the leading biological research cluster in Austria, and one of the most renowned in Europe. The research platform will establish interdisciplinary research cooperation between the university institutes at the Vienna Biocenter, and a group of researchers in the Social Sciences Faculty of the University of Vienna to jointly address current challenges of “Life Science Governance”.
LSG was entrusted with the "Science & Society" EU project Genebank, 2006-.
