DJW “Hiru no Kai“: Global Knowledge Infrastructure – Growth Through Sharing?
Approaching an Intercultural, Digital Knowledge Network
The sheer volume of numbers, data, facts is growing and the speed of generating scientific knowledge is ever accelerating. Simultaneously, access to knowledge is becoming more global and digital through open-source projects. At the same time, knowledge must be reliable, verified, and easily accessible. The most recent example during the pandemic with hospitals as well as various research institutions sharing data proved, that an elaborate infrastructure of knowledge benefits us all in tackling joint challenges, in answering globally affecting questions. Establishing a sustainable and reliable knowledge infrastructure can be key of economic growth, welfare, and quite individual well-being.
How can a stable knowledge infrastructure be created and – perhaps more importantly – sufficiently maintained? What are the challenges of providing this infrastructure for and with an intercultural Japanese-German background? Which potential of growth and verification of knowledge lies within the digital transformation?
We are delighted to welcome our cooperation partner DJW to Berlin and look forward to discussing the above and further questions with thought-provoking impulses by our two dialog partners Prof. Dr. Franz WALDENBERGER and Thomas ELM.
