Governance of and by data infrastructures

Responsabile scientifico/coordinatore - Prof.ssa Annalisa Pelizza

Breve descrizione della ricerca

Questo gruppo di ricerca è composto da studios* in diverse fasi del loro percorso professionale e con focus di ricerca sugli aspetti socio-tecnico-politici delle infrastrutture: dalle infrastrutture di dati a quelle alimentari, dall'urbanistica intelligente per la transizione climatica alle tecnologie di identificazione per la gestione della popolazione e del territorio. Da notare che tutti adottiamo un approccio performativo alle infrastrutture, viste sia come risorse metodologiche, sia come attori sociali che modellano e vengono modellate da attori, organizzazioni e istituzioni sociotecniche.

In particolare, la nostra ricerca esamina la governance delle infrastrutture emergenti, la valutazione tecnologica e la ricerca e l'innovazione responsabili (RRI), nonché la governance esercitata dalle infrastrutture, come dalle infrastrutture di dati (ad esempio, "politica del codice" o "codice come legge"), dalle infrastrutture urbane e per la transizione climatica, dalle infrastrutture alimentari, dall’AI, ecc.

La ricerca di questo gruppo è sostenuta da linee di finanziamento competitive e di eccellenza, come:

  • Consiglio Europeo della Ricerca, HORIZON 2020 ERC PROCESSING CITIZENSHIP: Digital registration of migrants as co-production of citizens, territory and Europe. Questo progetto studia come le infrastrutture di dati per la gestione dei cittadini di paesi terzi modellano le istituzioni moderne e l'ordine europeo.
  • Marie Slodowska Curie Actions, HORIZON 2020 MSCA Global Fellowship INFRATIME: Infrastructuring Time in Smart Urbanism and Urban Transitions. Questo progetto studia la governance delle infrastrutture nelle transizioni urbane, ecologiche e digitali secondo una prospettiva temporale. 
  • PON, Corona Food: Feeding the City under COVID19. Questo progetto studia i modi in cui le città lavorano per affrontare gli impatti economici e sociali causati dal Covid-19 sul sistema alimentare. 
  • IFRIS (Institut Francilien Recherche Innovation Société) finanziamento per la ricerca postdottorale, Please, draw me an interconnection! Governing (personal) data to ensure sovereignty in Europe
