    Science Mega Projects Communities: Mechanism for Effective Global Collaboration?

    12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

    Gridlock is a term to describe the inability of countries to cooperate via international institutions to address policy problems that span borders. In my study of three science mega-projects (SMP), I show that they lead global support networks of the highest order. The three are CERN, the ITER Nuclear Fusion Project and the International Space Station. Previous research into these endeavours has focused on recounting the stories of their scientific feats and technical innovations. This research investigates the reasons behind these triumphs from a social sciences perspective. The pathways through and beyond gridlock employed by the SMP communities’ governance and leadership regimes are examined. The analysis reveals that SMP leadership use a combination of pathway enabling mechanisms to actively, effectively and consistently manage multi-polarity.
