EnLIGHTeNING Lunch with Ed Finn

Imagination in Action

What does imagination have to do with academic research or interdisciplinary collaboration? What are our responsibilities as researchers and teachers in thinking about the future? In this talk I will use recent and current projects at the Center and Science and the Imagination to describe my working theory of imagination and its value as in application to scholarship, teaching and public engagement.

Since its establishment at ASU over a decade ago, CSPO and, later, SFIS have gained national and international acclaim for use-inspired, socially transformational research. 2016 brings the addition of the Institute for the Future of Innovation in Society (IFIS), which enhances the school’s public engagement and impact while its academic programs expand to offer undergraduate degrees in addition to the four graduate degrees.

This presentation will discuss some instances of, and normative implications for, Flipse’s research on designing interaction for responsible innovation at the research group on Science Communication at TU Delft. The core research theme of this group is ‘communication design for innovation’. His work has a close link to the Socio-Technical Integration Research (STIR) program at ASU, in which social scientists collaborate with their counterparts in science or engineering labs.

To achieve the increasing demand for energy worldwide, diversified technologies are necessary for energy production. In the renewable energy sector, Pakistan is using hydropower to meet the demand successfully, whereas projects addressing solar and wind energy are in the planning phase. The case of biomass is particularly relevant because of its sustainable way to produce biodiesel, biogas, bio oil, and ethanol from cheap raw materials. The production of biofuel is likely to play a key role in Pakistan’s energy future.
