Breaking Silos, Nudging Communities: the SITE4Society adventure

BY SHYAMA RAMANI
@ VOL 36 ON JUN 19, 2018

Shyama Ramani is Professorial Fellow at the research institute United Nations University-MERIT in Maastricht. Her research focuses on the relationships between technology, innovation and their governance for inclusive development. She is also the founder of two non-profit research units ‘Association Un Ami’ and ‘Friend in Need Trust’, in France and India.

Shyama experiences three kinds of knowledge divides today: that between students and scholars in good institutions and the not-so-good ones, that between academics and society and that between truth and fabricated truth.

In her PechaKucha presentation she shows how academics can contribute to societal welfare just through sharing the results of their research in an understandable way.
