Research Platforms bring researchers from different groups and disciplinary backgrounds together to discuss one specific theme. There are currently four platforms established:
The platform links researchers who, in the context of the research groups established at IHS, work on issues of gender and diversity, internally and beyond.
The idea of this platform is to bring together IHS employees from different research areas to pool knowledge on how to actively engage stakeholder groups and subsequently develop new tools and approaches.
The platform establishes a regular meeting ground for researchers, bringing together historians of science as well as social scientists.
This platform brings together scientific knowhow from several research groups at IHS.
This platform elaborates on interaction processes of societies with nature, including material metabolism with nature - mediated through work - as well as the symbolic and cultural meaning making of nature. The manifold societal relationships with nature have become critical in the last decades and are described as socio-ecological crisis which needs to be encountered by a global sustainable development.
