In the presence of NRW Science Minister Ina Brandes and Rainer Schmeltzer, Vice President of the North Rhine-Westphalia State Parliament, among others, the Johannes Rau Society celebrated its anniversary on 8 April 2024 at the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts in Düsseldorf. Greetings from politics and society were followed by a review of milestones achieved by the Society since its foundation, a panel discussion on the future of applied research and the awarding of this year’s JRF doctoral prize. Afterwards, the 16 JRF member institutes, including IDOS, presented their work and current cooperation projects to around 300 visitors to the event in an accompanying research exhibition.

At the IDOS stand, visitors were able to find out about the institute’s training and dialogue formats, the Postgraduate Programme, the Managing Global Governance Academy and the Shaping Futures Academy, as well as project-related information on the accompanying research for the Science Platform Sustainability 2030 (wpn2030).

As part of the wpn2030 joint project, the two JRF institutes, IDOS and the Wuppertal Institute – representing SDSN Germany as entity -, are researching the development of formats at the Science-Policy Interface (SPI). The strategic accompanying research focusses on criteria-based evaluation, co-creative design and the design of interaction formats between science and politics. The aim is to contribute to the further development of suitable formats in a reflexive and co-creative process. The focus is on valorising the scientific advisory boards advising on federal policy for sustainability and transformation policy in Germany and the work of the transformation teams.

IDOS is not only a founding member of the Johannes Rau Society, but also contributes to the strategic and substantive development of the JRF through its participation in central committees. Prof. Anna-Katharina Hornidge is one of the lead spokespersons on Globalisation and Integration, Dr Julia Leininger is a member of the Ethics Committee and Prof. Clara Brandi is a member of the Evaluation Working Group of the JRF.
