International Advisory Board
To ensure outstanding scientific and outreach quality, our project is supported by an International Advisory Board.
The Board provides guidelines with respect to the main research topics in line with the requirements for inter- and transdisciplinary research. Furthermore it evaluates the progress of the research agenda on a regular basis and advises the initiative on long-term strategic planning. The recommendations of non-academic members are essential for providing the applied focus of our research and to facilitate our overall transdisciplinary agenda.
The Board includes the following scholars and members of civil society networks and institutions:
Tony Belpaeme (Ghent University, Belgium)
Tereza Capelos (University of Birmingham, United Kingdom)
Donatella della Porta (SNS Florence, Italy)
Joana Breidenbach (betterplace.org, Germany)
Gisela Erler (Staatsrätin für Zivilgesellschaft und Bürgerbeteiligung im Staatsministerium Baden-Württemberg a.D., Germany)
Lilian Schwalb (Bundesnetzwerk Bürgerschaftliches Engagement, Germany)
