Continuing the discussion from Green Deal Call: selected topics for Edgeryders:
The funding call is here. Deadline: 26 January 2021.
From what I can tell from the call, the ideal would be to have:
a series of comparative ethnographic studies not unlike the “deep stories” in PARTENAIRE. EDGE working with universities like UniAalborg and communities like Blivande. Initial fieldsite ideas: Sweden, Italy for sure, and Denmark if Aalborg is participating. Then potentially: Poland or Hungary, Belgium or Netherlands, Greece or France. My goal would be to create double comparatives: 2 field sites per country and then cross-country comparisons.
SSNA/network science (EDGE and UniBordeaux)
government partnerships (Milano? any government entities we have worked for before? Partners from PARTENAIRE?)
Large participatory online conversation on topics like the future of work (EDGE ala Nadia) with “transdisciplinary networks of experts, researchers, practitioners and relevant civil society organisations on behavioural, social and cultural change”
some experimental element, perhaps a partner doing experimental psychology, to study the behavioural change element. Reading more about CKIC, seems like the experiments in long-termism could definitely fit the bill here.
This last bit is the most up in the air for me, but an experimental element seems to be something they are interested in, could strengthen the proposal, and could be interesting in general.
Distribution of Labour
I will need help with the government partnerships, primarily.
And as for experimental psychology, it’s new terrain for all of us so I can do some exploring! @alberto might have fun dreaming that one up with me. Maybe actually we could do SciFi Economics style experimentation…
Priority questions for Monday’s call
- How to think about interfacing with existing partners from projects like PARTENAIRE – what they do, who might be good to get involved with on this one.
- How to incorporate government partnerships.
- The nuts and bolts of writing this thing – anything I need to know in terms of big-picture coordination.
