I have or am developing an interdisciplinary research project and need operative support - can I request funding from the Dialogue Platform?
The Dialogue Platform only funds its own formats. If the area in which you need support falls in the area of finding a common object of research or in networking your group project, then you can apply for the Dialogue Platform’s calls for applications for the idea workshop or networking workshops. If you need support in the area of process diagnostics, you can request the Dialogue Platform’s corresponding format from the coordinator.

I have or am developing an interdisciplinary project, but the Dialogue Platform’s offers don’t fit my needs. Who can I talk to?

In the descriptions for the Dialogue Platform’s formats, methods are often mentioned. Which methods are used?
In the last ten years, the challenges of expedient process design in research groups and consortium initiatives have increasingly become the object of research at the intersection of science studies, organizational sociology, and business studies. The Dialogue Platform’s formats were developed together with experts from this area. The methods used are moderation, creativity, and process analysis techniques that have been adapted to the special requirements of researching in consortia - and can be adapted further depending on individual needs. They can help find individual, expedient solutions for your group project’s problems or support conditions that increase the chances of success for finding an original, consensual idea when initiating a consortium.
Which role does the Dialogue Platform’s coordinator play?
The Dialogue Platform’s coordinator is
responsible for the operative implementation of the Platform’s five
formats. In advance, he supervises the calls for applications, advises
interested researchers, initiatives, and consortia, and assists in the
selection procedure. After approval, depending on the format he takes
on further tasks:
- Networking workshop: Organization, methodological design, if applicable moderation
- Process diagnostics: methodological design, discussion moderation
- Methods workshop: Organization, coordination of content
- Conference of ideas: Organization, coordination of content
- Idea workshop: methodological design, if applicable moderation
