During the academic year 2017-2018, Energysense will engage in a collaborative project with the University of Lund on the theme “DATA: enabling us to better store, observe and understand what we measure”.
As part of this collaboration, Dr Anne Beaulieu will be appointed as International Visiting Research Fellow at the Pufendorf Institute at Lund University, Sweden. The Institute is an interdisciplinary research institute that aim to be a creative forum, an incubator for new ideas, and a springboard for new research initiatives.
The theme brings together researchers from several faculties of Lund University (School of Economics and Management, Humanities and Theology, Engineering, Medicine, Sciences and Social Sciences and the University Library). A number of international scholars are also involved, besides Beaulieu: Matthew Bietz (UC Irvine), Christine Borgman (UCLA), Sean Goggins (University of Missouri) and Michael Witt (Purdue University).
The DATA theme will harness a broad range of expertise in order to find solutions to challenges of data curation, visualisation, discovery and prediction, as well as reflect on cross-disciplinary collaboration, including reflexivity in data research, trust and reliability. In the course of the year, exchanges and visits between the participants will take place, culminating in a closing 3-day conference entitled “Opportunities and Challenges in the Future Use of Data”.
