What is our research focus? -Many ‘pathways’ to resilience in practice –some deficit related (e.g. science, data, policy, or examples), others require systemic change and innovation –this is what we are interested in. There is also a plurality of resilience ‘problems’-some do not fit politics, institutions and professional cultures as well as others –these difficult decisions are what we are interested in. Complement other RPM work. What is our intellectual Focus?–Science & Technology Studies(STS). A relatively newish field, it is focused on analysingthe ways that social contexts (e.g. legal, governmental, political, commercial, civil, cultural) produce, mediate, and co-constitute scientific knowledge. Shift away from ‘barriers’ or ‘translation’ approaches.
