Seminar 'Data and Methods to Analyse Interaction between Professional and Local Knowledge on Ecological Hazards’

December 15-16, 2020

CGES, St Petersburg University

The two-day seminar was organised by Kseniia Puzyreva and Nikita Basov, CGES St Petersburg University within the framework of the CGES anchor project ‘Knowledge Creation on Ecological Hazards in Russian and European Local Communities’ supported by the Russian Science Foundation. The aim of the Seminar was to share the results of the project-affiliated research teams.

During the first day of the Seminar five teams of international researchers presented the results of empirical data collection in floodprone communities in Russia, Germany, Italy, England, and the Netherlands. The second day featured presentations and discussions of the three types of analytical approaches developed in the project and used to analyse the interplay between local and expert flood risk management knowledge: mixed-method, formal, statistical semantic, and socio-semantic network analyses.
