Science and Democracy Network 14th Annual Meeting

Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. Harvard Law School, June 25-27, 2015

The Program on Science, Technology and Society (STS) at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government organized this meeting. The Program on STS is dedicated to enhancing the quality of research, education, and public debate on the role of science and technology in contemporary societies. Through integrated, cross-disciplinary initiatives in research, teaching, training, and public outreach the Program seeks to develop foundational, policy-relevant insights into the nature of science and technology, and the ways in which they both influence and are influenced by society, politics, and culture. Among the fields that significantly contribute to the STS Program’s core mission are science and technology studies, anthropology, comparative politics, history, government, law, and sociology.

Cecilia Hidalgo presented a paper titled "New partnerships coproducing climate authoritative knowledge: the case of the provision of climate services in Southeastern South America (SESA)" that was discussed by experts in the field coming mainly from Europe and USA  during a session devoted to varieties of co-production of knowledge.

In her way to Harvard, Cecilia and Renzo Taddei met at Columbia University (New York) where Renzo was giving a Seminar. After an unforgettable lunch with the outstanding professor of anthropology and education Lambros Comitas, they worked on a coauthored paper and discussed next future joint activities.
