In this episode, we look at the question of how to evaluate large research infrastructures – from the Large Hadron Collider to the European Social Survey. We conducted a very exciting online interview with our colleagues Neil Brown and Peter Kolarz from Technopolis Group | UK. We learnt that a new research infrastructure is like a life commitment and that you have to immerse yourself in order to understand the effects on all dimensions.

This episode was made possible with the kind support of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF). It is part of the initiative of the BMBWF for strengthening trust in sciecne and democracy in Austria (#TruSD). Thank you very much!
