PA51B - Advancing the Science of Science to Action eLightning
Other Events

Global changes happening now and into the future imply the need for aggressive action by society. Many researchers are keen to inform, or even impel, these actions. In other words, their aim is to produce actionable science. These laudable aspirations also raise fundamental questions about how science can serve society better than it already does. What is actionable science? How is it produced? Who is responsible for it? How do we evaluate it? In exploring these questions systematically, we may build a better evidence base to guide changes to research funding, practice, and dissemination. For this session, we invite perspectives from the spectrum of disciplinary and practical perspectives. We invite the exchange of hypotheses, results, and critical appraisals that could serve to make more systematic sense of the changing norms, practices, and resulting outcomes that arise from socially-engaged research.
