Open Scholarship Week 2022: Creating Our Future - seeking the Irish public's ideas for what research should explore to make Ireland better for all
From Hardy Schwamm
Dónal Browne's talk explained the end-to-end journey for how Science Foundation Ireland and Havas led a Government of Ireland campaign to gather over 18,000 ideas from the Irish public.
Challenges needed to address included how to mitigate bias; how to market open engagement with research; and how to enable meaningful change. From campaign design to delivery; from idea collection to analysis; from idea synthesis to recommendations; this talk focussed on the meandering journey of how to run an inclusive public campaign to encourage open innovation and research.
