Warm welcome to IGDORE, Wolfgang Lukas!
Wolfgang has a PhD in Physics from the University of Innsbruck, Austria. He has deep experience with ambitious collaborations spanning 1000s of individuals from his time contributing to the ATLAS collaboration at CERN. Over a period of several years, he was a credited contributor to 100s of papers on particle physics by the ATLAS collaboration. He has also contributed to a recent collaborative publication that proposes an “Open Innovation in Science” (OIS) research framework. His current projects focus on strengthening interdisciplinary collaboration and transforming academic and research culture. This work is connected to several research networks including Mind & Life Europe and CERN, and has been supported by the Yoga Science Foundation. Through the “Contemplative Scientific Collaboration” project and the “Mindful Researchers” initiative, he is building bridges between contemplative practices, scientific collaboration, community building, and participatory methods. He looks forward to contributing to IGDORE and the Open Science community.
