Talk:Wikimania 2009 poster abstract: Opasnet - a wiki site for improving societal decision-making
Opasnet as a systematic science-policy interface
|Fact discussion: .|
|Opening statement: Systematic policy guidance is a necessary aspect of Opasnet and deserves being explicitly mentioned alongside, or instead of, interaction with public audience.
Closing statement: Scientists, and policy-makers to be added alongside general public as main target groups of Opasnet
(A closing statement, when resolved, should be updated to the main page.)
←--1:: . One of the driving forces, if not the main force, behind Opasnet development is the need to enable more systematic analysis of impacts of societal decisions, and thereby develop a better functioning science-policy interface that is (at minimum can be) policy prescriptive according to the state-of-the-art scientific understanding about societally important issues. Only bringing up the interaction with public audience undermines this important, and scientifically interesting, aspect of Opasnet --Mikko Pohjola 21:27, 28 April 2009 (EEST) (type: truth; paradigms: science: defence)
