Introduction to the spicosa project and professional training workshop aims spicosa science and policy integration f

The SPICOSA approach training :

Views the coast as a system..well many systems

Popperian domains: physical / mind / information

Domains are incommensurable but interfaceable

Systems Approach is the selected methdology to bring domains together

...but not mechnical – evolving clockwork.

The SPICOSA approach training :

?


Introduction to the spicosa project and professional training workshop aims spicosa science and policy integration f

8 Key concepts of SPICOSA approach training :

Multiple domains – « worlds »

Hard and soft systems

Models (conceptual, mathematical & numerical)

Hard and soft thinking.

8 Key concepts of SPICOSA approach training :

Cause and effect: DPSIR

Scale (size + resolution)

Multiple perceptions

Support decision making


Introduction to the spicosa project and professional training workshop aims spicosa science and policy integration f

Role and aim of this workshop training :

SPICOSA’s role is to support « decision making processes aiming at improving the sustainability of Coastal Systems.. »

We don’t « do » management

We don’t « advise » on management

We do provide knowldge to help managers

.....BUT.....


Introduction to the spicosa project and professional training workshop aims spicosa science and policy integration f

Role and aim of this workshop training :

...SPICOSA is an academic framework

....SPICOSA is an uproven approach

.....SPICOSA has the opportunity to be tested out at SSA’s (including Cork).


Introduction to the spicosa project and professional training workshop aims spicosa science and policy integration f

Role and aim of this workshop training :

Thus, we wish to « ground truth » the project in management reality

This involves interacting with « real » people (stakeholders)....like you!

We hope you will gain insights into approaches and ways to view the coastal system.


Introduction to the spicosa project and professional training workshop aims spicosa science and policy integration f

Role and aim of this workshop training :

Thus, the aim of this workshop is « to develop awareness in Cork stakeholders of the SPICOSA approach and to jointly ground-truth some key aspects of the Cork site approach».


Introduction to the spicosa project and professional training workshop aims spicosa science and policy integration f

Role and aim of this workshop training :

The workshop is designed to promote interaction, free-thinking & innovation

Differences of views are supported!

We will facilitate but the result is in your hands.
