Third Workshop on Archetype Analysis

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, November 2, 2019 (All day)
Palacky University Olomouc, Czech Republic

The Third Archetype Workshop will be held in Olomouc, Czech Republic, from Oct 30 to Nov 1, 2019. The workshop will follow up on previous two successful workshops held in Bern in 2017 and Berlin in 2018. This time it will be hosted by the Palacky University in the historical city of Olomouc, the center of Moravia region, Czech Republic.

Objectives: The workshop will strengthen the network of researchers using archetype analysis in sustainability research. Specifically, it will provide a unique opportunity to:

  1. Reflect on the recent advances, current state and emerging thematic and methodological frontiers of archetype analysis (meanings, methodologies, quality criteria, insights into archetypes in different fields). 

  2. Discuss how to tackle main thematic and methodological frontiers, using examples from selected ongoing research projects in different fields of sustainability research (e.g. agro-food systems, institutional analysis, land systems, climate change, etc.). 

  3. Brainstorm on lessons learned and new ideas on useful archetype applications, especially in the context of science-policy-practice interfaces (e.g. up-scaling and transfer of knowledge). 

  4. Identify themes and suggest partner consortia for 2-3 multidisciplinary project proposals with archetype analysis in the core (e.g. Horizon 2020). 

  5. Generate a proposal for 1-2 new special issues. 

Participants: The workshop will bring together 15-30 researchers from different fields of sustainability research. It is open to all researchers with experience and/or interest in archetype analyses.
