Questions related to Brainstorming
The high prevalence of genetic red cell disorders raises critical questions about the safety and efficacy of the blood transfusion process. With conditions like sickle cell anemia and thalassemia affecting a significant portion of the population, examining how these disorders influence different stages of blood transfusions is imperative. From donor screening to compatibility testing and post-transfusion outcomes, the challenges posed by these disorders are multifaceted. This discussion aims to explore the complexities surrounding the impact of genetic red cell disorders on blood transfusions in Nigeria and brainstorm potential strategies to address these challenges and ensure safe and effective transfusion practices for all individuals in need.

I saw this paper and I believe that it has a lot of promise. Please can we brainstorm on how we can form a group and write an implementation proposal with the concerned industry experts? It would be nice if the author can help, though his involvement is not necessary if he is not interested in taking their theory to the market.
What role in the development of scientific cooperation is the application of ethics, culture and respect towards other people, other cultures, other value systems, etc.?
What role does the application of ethics, culture and respect towards other people, other cultures, other value systems, etc. play in the development of scientific cooperation, including the conduct of interdisciplinary research projects, scientific cooperation within the framework of international teams of researchers and scientists, within the framework of ongoing discussions on the discussion forum of this Research Gate portal?
Dear Researchers and Scientists, Friends and Colleagues,
In my opinion, answering the above question, I state that the role of applying the principles of ethics, culture and respect towards other people, other cultures, other value systems, etc. in the development of scientific cooperation, including the conduct of interdisciplinary research projects, scientific cooperation within the framework of international teams of researchers and scientists, within the framework of the ongoing discussions on the discussion forum of this Research Gate portal. Do you agree with me?
In the discussion forum of this Research Gate portal, in order to inspire discussion on various research topics, I have formulated many questions and theses.
I am glad that many of these questions turned out to inspire discussions involving many researchers, scientists, experts in a particular field, people who conduct scientific research on a particular issue, people who publish in their scientific publications the results of their research, people who are interested in a particular issue taken up in the mentioned questions posted on the discussion forum of this Research Gate portal.
I am glad that the questions posed on this discussion forum of the Research Gate portal have proved to be an inspiration for interesting discussions, in which noble researchers and scientists participate. In the course of these discussions, which sometimes take on the character of brainstorming, exchange of ideas, new inspirations for further research topics emerge, new research concepts are formed, proposals for new topics for theses are made, etc. Within the framework of the discussions held, researchers and scientists exchange their experiences of their scientific research, present their research results, inspire scientific cooperation, point out other new insights on certain issues. Thanks to this, there are inspirations for new research directions, for undertaking scientific cooperation in various topics and also for interdisciplinary research teams, etc. This is the key purpose of this discussion forum of the Research Gate portal.
However, I am very saddened when the participating researchers and scientists in the framework of the discussions held, instead of a desire for understanding, understanding, respect towards other people, the participants in the discussions representing other scientific communities, other cultures, other countries instead of respect and culture generate negative emotions, instead of substantive arguments in support of their theses turn to other Persons with invectives and negative expressions, i.e. act contrary to the principles of ethics and the basics of culture, ignoring the principles of ethics of research and science, also ignoring the principles of ethics of this discussion forum. So I very much ask you to follow the rules of culture and respect other people participating in discussions. This is important because aggression generates aggression and respect generates respect. Hopefully, looking to the future, I believe that those fortunately mentioned above situations of negative nature were few and in the future there will be none, and that on the discussion forum of the Research Gate portal, everyone participating in discussions will apply respect to other people, participants in discussions and also regardless of whether other participants in discussions represent other scientific communities, other cultures, other countries and so on.
Faced with the development of various global problems, in trying to solve these problems we should all look for what unites us and not what divides us. This is the key to the development of our scientific cooperation and also to jointly solve various global problems.
Therefore, in the situation of participating in discussions on this Research Gate portal, I therefore very much ask you to apply the principles of ethics, culture and respect for others.
And what is your opinion on this topic?
Please feel free to respond,
I invite everyone to join the discussion,
Thank you very much,
I encourage you to participate in discussions on this discussion forum on various topics,
I extend my warmest greetings to all participants in the discussions on the Research Gate portal,
Food systems - a very important issue globally. Achieving sustainable food systems is among the pressing issues that confront almost, if not all countries, from developed to developing nations.
How can we engage more with food systems to enhance their sustainability? We need to brainstorm on this, and feel free to share your thoughts, either here tersely or more elaborately via the scientific contributions (literature synthesis, field surveys, etc) to this special issue, now open in Foods MDPI (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/foods/special_issues/YEYN5VAY0R)
I have a MEG data set which is about 5 minutes long for each subject. I want to detect and correct existing artifacts using the ICA approach using the Brainstorm toolbox. When I performed ICA, the first component (the dominant one) has a very small amplitude, (about 1000 times smaller in comparison to other components) and looks like a DC signal. Should I remove this component? It is the first component and I want to be sure about this decision as it may be a signal, not an artifact. In the following, you can see the components.Thanks!
Communication is the key-word for both COVID causes and effects. Consequently, "life will not be the same" for the Social Sciences too. Researchers will soon want to develop a broader vision and new perspectives. This question is an invitation to brainstorm the future of the social paradigm.
I am on a state oral health department fellowship, and I am severely frustrated with picking an evaluation project. It has been months of literature research, brainstorming, planning, and talking with stakeholders. The topic I want to do is the Sugar Sweeten Beverage invention guide (similar to tobacco cessation 5A's) at the state level. However, I cannot formulate a question, target audience, and data to back up the evaluation. Has anyone done any state evaluation intervention method? Or any pointers? Thanks.
Among different tool of investigations such as Fish bone analysis, tree analysis, 5 why , brainstorming which one is more scientific and reliable for identifying root cause of different quality events occurred in pharmaceutical industry ?
Hi, I wanted to start a brainstorming session to develop a greenhouse design using easy to acquire material and the following goals
- Use a temperature moderating climate battery design
- Goal for the design to stand alone and operate off grid
- Complete hydroponic growth process, use of only inert strata for any root support
- Internal plant scaffolding design to maximize use of space and increase crop yield
- Organic pest control. Develop a self-sustained entomological environment within the greenhouse both for pollination and pest control
I hope many of you will find this project interesting, feel free to share any ideas of prototypes that you feel is useful to achieve these goals.
I will help moderate this discussion, anyone else with subject matter experience can also help moderate the discussion
I look forward to hearing from everyone on this topic. Thank You
Recently, my proposal "Enclave Dolarization: the case of the Triple Frontier of Paraná" was selected to participate in the project "Dollarizations in a global world: Socio-Anthropological Perspectives", promoted by the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO) -> https://www.linkedin.com/posts/juan-agullo_dollarization-clacso-latinamerica-activity-6899724464477859840-9_ur
My hypothesis is that there are some "Enclave Dollarizations" that coexist with the most obvious "National Dollarizations" (Panama, Ecuador or, de facto, in Venezuela). These dollarizations usually take place in "exception" territories (such as free trade zones, tourist areas or borders, among others).
I'm working on a Tri-Border Area and I'm confronted with the classic methodological issues: absence of data; different statistical criteria (depending on the countries); lack of officials who speak openly about the question (dollarization, i.e., is related to smuggling; tax evasion, etc...).
I'm receptive to any methodological suggestion related with approaches, strategies and tools.
Thank you very much
i need materials related to this topic:"Tthe effect of brainstorming instructional strategy on students academic performance on constructions and loci
In his book Black Swan, Taleb (2010) believes that the human mind is subject to many blind spots, illusions and biases and that: “The right strategy for inventors and entrepreneurs is to rely less on detailed plans and to focus as much as possible on creative thinking and recognizing opportunities when they arise. Excessive attention to what we know results in yet another similar weakness: we tend to learn the details instead of adopting general laws.” Resistance to change has long been cited as one of the key reasons why companies do not adapt to change on time. One of the approaches is exercise "How to destroy a company". Employees and stakeholders can be divided into groups to find the most effective ways to destroy a company. Lisa Bodell, founder and CEO of the company “Futurethink”, uses simple techniques to help organizations embrace change and increase their ability to innovate, such as Google, Novartis, and HBO: “The first time the HBO team performed this exercise, it created three tactics that a top competitor could use to destroy HBO. The American mining company regularly conducts this exercise in order to protect itself from both competitive and market forces.” Modern management has always existed for “best practices”. In trainings, managers use role models to encourage and direct change. New researches suggest a method better than the previous one. Scientists from the Kellogg School of Management in the USA conducted a series of experiments, and in one such experiment managers were gathered in small teams to create unusual creative purposes for a cardboard box. Before the brainstorming, half of the group was given the task to share the unpleasant stories from the past six months, and the other half was given the task to share the stories they are proud of. According to the results of the experiment, the teams that shared unpleasant stories generated 26 percent more ideas than the groups that shared proud stories.
Hi, I would like to focus my dissertation on the phenomenon of the public voting 'NO' to the Colombian peace treaties of 2016.
I have done some brainstorming:
- Opposition campaign lead by popular ex-president Alvaro Uribe
- Cultural differences
- Historical background (suffering)
- People not interested in politics
- Media, propaganda coverage, fake news
- Difficulty in reading the peace accords
- The church involvement against the government
- Electoral victory of Alvaro Uribe
I was wondering if you had some theoretical knowledge I can link my research to? I would really appreciate some help narrowing down to have a more focused direction, thank you.
I am currently studying educational paradigms and I am interested in Constructivist.
Based on the study of the educational paradigms, I believe that this paradigm has profound enlightenment, guidance and practice not only for educational research but also for my own teaching design. Here are my three reasons:
The constructivist paradigm is derived from hermeneutics (Clegg & Slife, 2009), which attaches importance to understanding each person's life experience and the complex world composed of these experiences from each person's perspective. Its axiology holds that constructivism provides a balanced expression of value. The formation of such axiology and concept has far-reaching guiding significance to teaching design. Taking my Chinese teaching experience as an example, a successful teaching design should meet the cognitive needs of all students to the greatest extent possible. In class, teachers should not only interact with a few enthusiastic and bold students who are willing to share their ideas, but also take care of the differences between different students as much as possible and provide and create a fair, free and open learning situation for them. For example, at the beginning of a project, teachers who want to conduct research or better tap into student involvement and enthusiasm can use the Padlet or Mentimeter to collect ideas or brainstorm ideas. In the process of the project, the use of these interactive platforms can also help teachers understand students' understanding and grasp the situation, and such an open platform also weakens students' psychological concerns, so that the dialogue between students and teachers and students is more equal and calm.
The epistemology of constructivism paradigm is the interactive link between researchers and participants. In view of this, my understanding is as follows: Constructivism believes that students acquire knowledge not through unilateral teaching by teachers, but in a certain context, with the help of others, that is, through the process of meaning construction through interpersonal cooperation. My experience in Chinese teaching, for example, in under the guidance and influence of this paradigm, the main body of the language classroom dominated by teachers in traditional teaching and at the core of the classroom to explain a classical background, meaning and thought, change is the main body of the classroom for students, they are no longer by the object of knowledge, but in the teacher's assistance and guidance, To explore the situation is to look up materials and watch videos to understand the writing background and life story of the poet; to collaborate is to cooperate with a group or peer to complete a certain goal of poetry research; to develop conversation is to carry out classroom discussion and communication between teachers and students, and finally form their own cognitive process of this poem.
The research of constructivism paradigm is usually nonlinear. In the process of research, the purpose and research questions may change as we know more about the environment and participants. The core of education is people-oriented, so no matter education research, teaching reform or the implementation of teaching links can not be separated from the focus on learning objects. My experience in Chinese teaching, for example, in this paradigm, and under the influence of the guidance of the teacher and prepare for the design of a class is no longer confined to their own ideas, but based on students of the class learning, and in the process of classroom teaching and flexible to control the content of the inquiry learning (rather than the scripted lesson plan how to design is how to teach). In a real teaching environment, students are the subjects of the classroom, and their answers and feedback often bring teachers inspiration, surprise and challenge. At this time, if teachers can timely guide students and build scaffolding for them to explore, and help them to carry out personalized exploration activities, learners will get more lasting learning significance.
Currently I am beginning research on different methods and strategies on how to improve students’ reading skills in primary school. If I want to use the research methods of constructivism to carry out this research, do you have any good suggestions or relevant materials or articles to recommend? I look forward to your reply.
To develop an outstanding research topic, the following steps should be taken:
- Think of a research area that interest you
- Brainstorm on possible titles, subjects
- Narrow down the topic to a specific issue
- Look for contemporary or trending issues in the Country
- Ensure there is adequate material for the study.
- Take a time out to structure your topic properly, to reflect both Independent and Dependent Variables.
My 6th-grade son is doing an independent science project for school. He chose to investigate inexpensive ways to view air currents.
In addition to the experimental work, part of his assignment is to interview up to three people who can provide him with knowledge, and help him brainstorm or improve upon ideas. We have already observed that air disturbances having large heat gradients are easily viewed as shadowgraphs. But we need better sensitivity for small gradients, possibly a Schlieren arrangement. In preparation, I have purchased some inexpensive materials that should prove useful: a small 100mm parabolic mirror with a 150mm focal length, a 12-inch diameter Fresnel magnifying lens with a 1-meter focal length, and a big 1x2 meter sheet of retroreflective fabric. Hopefully we can put them to use. If you are willing to be interviewed for 10-15 minutes about experiment ideas, please let me know. Zoom, Skype, Facetime, whatever is preferable. We're in the US Pacific time zone.
One of the goals of the scientific platforms, including Research Gate, is to help researchers to update their knowledge regarding the recent developments in research in their area of study. We can help new researchers by suggesting titles or topics for research and in this way we can promote spreading knowledge and it would be another way for connecting researchers all over the world. Moreover, some researchers may co-author some topics as well as brainstorm ideas in their areas. I'll start with some topics that might be interesting for some researchers in the field of "translation" and I expect others to contribute. Thanks a lot in advance for your contribution. And I think you will get lots of thanks from such researchers.
1.Metonymy as a pragmatic style for politeness in religious texts with reference to translation.
2. Naturalness in translation: advantages and disadvantages.
This is to lanche the idea of a future international meeting yielding global educational brainstorming to set the rules for a robust calibrated universally agreed upon just world ranking system of universities from the discipline down to the specialty level.
The major principle behind mRNA based technology in vaccine design and function lies in it's use to convey specific or choice transcript, encoding one or more immunogen(s), into the host cell cytoplasm as subsequent expression here, generates translated protein(s) within the membrane, which are either secreted or intracellularly located.
This is finding use to therapeutically tackle difficukt-to deal with pathogens.
As pathogens are updating there evasive tactics within the body system to shrug-off counter immune attacks on them, it is appropriate for the scientific community to update and upgrade technology and precision tools to tame and check these pathogens.
Your views are welcome and nice, as we keep brainstorming on this sensitive issue in the Science of Infectious diseases and our deck of control and check-mate efforts, dear beloved colleagues and associates.
Thank you and pax shalom to me and to you all
In the arid region, the shallow aquifers are mainly recharged by the infiltrated water from the adjacent streams (rivers, canals, drains ..and so on). How can I prove this relationship and what are the suitable methods and techniques should I use to characterize such a recharge process? Open to brainstorming
I am interested in understanding more about NGOs that work with refugees. I am brainstorming a project that does not involve IRB approval.
I'm looking for free brainstorming tools to help my students come up with ideas for research topics in English Literature. Most of what I found are paid software or they merely function more like a mind-mapping tool rather than a brainstorming one. Any suggestions are much appreciated!
I came across a master thesis which presents a scenario about the future of nursery in a particular sanitary region. In the methodological section the author states that he provided the experts gathered in the brainstorming exercise with the driving forces and the respective uncertainties so that they can pick the critical ones, in order to build the scenario. Is that a good procedure? Actually this is the first time I came across with this. I think brainstorming meant o provide the driving forces. Am I wright?
Hi scholars, I’m curious what your biggest problems are with visual communication of your research or technology. I’m happy to share my results and brainstorm some solutions together!
In particular, I am interested in how it would make a difference in your life to get a good answer for this problem or find a solution for your need? How easy is it for you to find solutions to your problem?
I ran a series of workshops in which experts were divided into small groups and asked to discuss various points. After the discussion, they returned to the larger group and reported their views back. As they were summarising their points and as the general discussion was unfolding, my colleague (another researcher) took notes (we did not audio or video record these events). We have gathered a lot of very interesting data which has never been documented before and which came out of very rich brainstorming sessions among experts from many disciplines. However, these written notes are formed of (often) incomplete statements and bullet points which may have, of course, been filtered by my colleague taking the notes.
My 2 questions for you:
1. Is it acceptable to run a thematic analysis of these notes, although having summaries of ideas instead of complete statements does make it difficult for me to accurately contextualise them?
2. Might this analysis be publishable as a peer-reviewed article?
Many thanks indeed!
Can we brainstorm adaptation strategies to climate change for disadvantaged communities? Extra points for strategies to adapt/cope with water-related issues. Think also on actions from the government and the private sector. I'll start with just a couple:
- Rainwater harvesting systems
- Single unit reverse osmosis filters
- Climate and water education
I am looking at different methods to measure the expression of proteins in vivo in plant cells. I know that GFP-tagging is the most historically common, but I'm just brainstorming (so don't worry about technology I have on hand). Is there a way to target antibodies in plants? Are there ways other than GFP tagging to measure protein expression in these systems?
Everyone knows how to do maintenance for his car and house as well as fixed the problem or potential problem as early as possible to prevent trouble and save money.
However, ourselves and our body is the most valuable asset in our life. But, people do not do preventive health care. Keep running until one day out to lay down on the bed.
Let's brainstorm to see how can we incentive the preventive health care be popular everywhere?

I know this is a simple/mundane ELISA question but appreciate any feedback I could receive. I am a lab tech and have worked other places before, but about half a year ago I started at a diagnostics lab where we run ELISA's daily.
The ELISA is a sandwich ELISA, its not from a kit and we coat our own plates but its a pretty standard test (VWF antigen) and they have used the same tried and true protocols a long time. (Well tested antibodies concentrations, incubation periods, etc. Covers on the plates to reduce evaporation, water bath to reduce edge effect). The long term lab techs have no issues with running the ELISAs.
I, on the other hand, have been having issues.
About half the time my plates look lovely and the control values are fine, the other half the time my control values are too low. (They average the control lot values and they require all controls of that lot to fall within a range of 2 standard deviations from the average, so too low would be falling outside the 2 SD range).
There have been multiple times where I have done the same samples that others in the lab have run and my values always match but my control is low so I am fairly certain it is just an issue affecting the controls.
My CV's are always fine (excluding a random one here and there but they are rare). I plate the diluted samples, standard, and control I have prepared onto multiple plates at once and one plate will end up being low while the other (from the same set of sample dilutions) is absolutely fine so I don't believe it is an error in preparation/dilution of the control or the standard.
Additionally, the curves always look fine as far as I or the higher techs can recognize*, and there is not a high background level.
I have looked at troubleshooting from sites such as bio-rand and thermofisher and they address high controls but not much on low... except to say that the antibody calculation is off which I find hard to believe as, being a diagnostic lab, they use these calculations daily without issues.
I am not the only "new" tech to have had this issue but the higher up techs have walked me through the steps again recently to see if they could figure it out and stated they don't visually see anything I am doing wrong...but they also have stated they aren't very good at troubleshooting the ELISA. This means to me that, while I know how to pipet I cannot rule out if it is technique related (when they eyeball a meniscus are they a little high or do they wash differently or something?) or not (perhaps it is something that is just very sensitive but because I do the majority of the ELISA's I feel the brunt?) as I don't get much feedback.
It is getting very frustrating for me when one plate is fine and the next is not and I am unable to figure out where the difference may be.
If anyone has feedback or even brainstorming ideas as to what may cause my controls to be low it would be greatly appreciated
I am student and I have a final year project, I have chance to do it on the privacy on social network site (Social media) but right now I am in brainstorming phase. I couldn't come up with good idea that I can write a short proposal to my advisor.
I need your help guys to advice me some of ideas about privacy issues rated to the end users. Keep this in mind I can do my work as technical side or based on user study.
Waiting for your help thanks in advance
We are brainstorming about research involving the fields of genetics and oncology. We were wondering if chemotherapy could interfere with the results of the DNA isolation and Genetic results. Would it be possible to get blood samples during chemotherapy or is it best to do this between chemotherapy sessions?
Thanks in advance,

I will be teaching a class of 100 students this winter.
I'm brainstorming for ideas to make it more interactive and I'd like to find a tool which can gather students' answers to my question (anonymously?) and project the statistics on my PPT (or screen) immediately.
I think there might be some interesting options with (free for students) smartphone apps.
Do you use/know an app like this? Give me your advice please!
My first post on Research Gate! Hopefully it helps my endeavor :] and warning, it is long!
As the title said, I am brainstorming topics for my thesis. I am enrolled as MS, but will pursue PhD afterwards.
I am extremely interested in WECs. I have worked on a solar-based project before, and, until enrolling at OSU, had never heard of water based renewable energies! I'm so enthralled by them that I am taking a graduate CE course to better understand water wave mechanics.
The problem is, while I am an EE, I am not 500% interested in, for example:
- PE: for WECs, this might be designing a circuit with a super capacitor to help smooth the power output
- Control strategies through simulation: e.g. MPC in Simulink/WECsim
I have feared that maybe I chose wrong, and a ME/CE would suit me better, but all my advisors have told me that, "EEs wear multiple hats, we will surely find something for you"
Now to find what that something is!
I said "not 500%" because, I DO think those topics are interesting. I ask my friends hours on end what their PE circuit is, and to explain their method, and even go home and research to gain a fundamental understanding; I read a 50pg MPC document and covered each page top to bottom in notes you can't even tell where the original text is; I've attended WECSim courses to see how they are implementing control strategies
BUT it is not what I would want my thesis topic to be (I don't think, who knows maybe I start and I like it!)
I have talked to my advisor a lot, but am now reaching out to the power of the internet for various opinions...
So, does anyone have any ideas on what could be researched?
The only topic I found interesting when him and I were discussing were some WECs self adjusting to their environment.
Also, I know that most WECs are designed to work best at a certain frequency, but is there research out there regarding a WEC that could work at multiple frequencies, or change its' internal circuitry (control strategy) to better work at the average changing frequency of incoming waves?
Anything is really helpful. I am and will continue thoroughly researching and talking to many folks in the field to find something I am really passionate about, because in the end, that will make for a larger impact on the world.
I think it would be a very interesting exercise to brainstorm and develop strategies for both women in healthcare and organizational leaders to learn how to increase the value of women in key leadership positions. This, it would appear to me, could be a great outgrowth of your research and the sequel to this study. Just some random thoughts.
I am currently looking research ideas focusing on where I could go as a master’s student. It seems as there is a lot of recent towards reinforcement learning in Deep Learning to Learn, and algorithms which explore this such as SNAIL, MAML, etc. I’m currently brainstorming ideas that I could potentially explore in this area as further research or study, but something practical enough to tackle in the course of a year. Some ideas I had were studying various algorithms which explore robots learning to learn an environment that is constantly changing in real time (this could cover domain randomization, simulation training, etc.). Or perhaps there are deep learning to learn techniques that I can explore through Content Based Image annotation and clustering algorithms such as affinity propagation. Or perhaps there might be something I am not exploring and should when it comes to deep learning, image learning, environment learning, etc.
Dear Applied Linguists,
This is an observation, much limited to my Pakistani context, that linguistics is comparatively a very new field. However, it is gaining momentum and ground in Pakistan through various university programs and a lot of research is being undertaken on various issues related to language(s).
But here comes the problem, the research that we produce is limited to only our linguistic departments, the discourse too is limited to conferences, symposiums, workshops, seminars and private discussions and classroom discussions. We do not connect with the public and masses who are the actual beneficiaries of this research. There is a gulf of distance between us and them. Have we identified the means through which we can reach them? Can we really do that? How to get to them? This question is for all practitioners and researchers to brainstorm ideas about this problem at the hand.
My name is Jaco Vorster form CQUniversity.
Im doing an Organisational behavior study regarding work motivation strategies and generations. Was wondering if we can brainstorm together because i have an interest in your strategies and identity management.
For my master's thesis, I want to not only 'get it done' but also work on the topics that interest me. Therefore, I chose 3D printing (additive manufacturing) and Circular Economy as two main points that I want to look deeper into. However, finding the connection between these relatively new topics have been harder than I thought it would be. Do you have any good idea? Thank you in advance!
I am looking for a research topic about Micro-grid, Energy management, Zero-energy buildings and so on. All ideas and brainstorms are welcome.
Co-creation is based on a few basic principles. I want to test projectteams to what extent they have met a co-creational approach. In a new project you could organise workshops with this in mind. But the question is for (civil)projects in which the tea didn't explicitly worked in a co-creational way. Any idea how I could identify certain triggers that would tell me the projectteam did followed the principles till a certain extent?
Therefore i'm looking for indicators who can tell something about the level of maturity of applying a co-creational approach.
For example: A meeting is conducted with all stakeholders (inc. end users) in which a brainstorm was organized.
Or: A platform (offline or online) was provided in which stakholders could react on each other.
At best i'm hoping to find some indicators for each principle:
Dialogue, Access, Risk Reduction, Transparancy (Prahalad & Ramaswamy) and Equality among stakeholders.
I have a set of data from qualitative research. The size of sample is 30. I used method Individual Brainstorming for collecting data and coded them. Would you please recommend any method or solfware for analysing this data?
I am comparing a weeded (decades ago) and non-weeded part of the same forest, regarding the distribution of stems in different DBH categories. Although the expected long-term effect of weeding was that trees have increased growth rate, I found three times more trees above 50 DBH in the non-weeded compared to the weeded. Since it is the same forest, the species composition is very similar, so the difference is not due to some species that tend to grow bigger. Any suggestions would be great for further brainstorming! + The area is in a tropical island (Mauritius), where the main weed, which has been removed is Psidium cattleianum.
We’re interested in technologies and processes directly integrating sensors (human health parameters etc.), input and output functions (buttons, screens etc.) and more (cooling, heating etc.) into a textile material. The textile should not serve as cover above the sensor- / function-layer but directly represent the integrated functions.
Feel free to share all ideas relating to our issue. Besides that, any additional function and its integration are of interest for us.
There are no industry specific restrictions and the physical state / kind of the textile is free of choice as well. All industries (fashion, furniture, automotive, transport etc.) are relevant for our brainstorming.
Please feel free to contact us for any questions. We’re looking forward to your great ideas!
Thank you in advance!
The Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) is working to increase capacity around what are known as "bottom-up approaches" to adaptive water resources management. These methods have an emphasis on system vulnerabilities and involve active stakeholder involvement in the decision-making processes.
We would like to create a forum of common solution finders to help institutions and individuals ask questions, brainstorm, share insights, and support experimentation and adoptions when it comes to bottom-up approaches towards resilient water management. This material will be showcased on an evolving "Knowledge Platform" to be hosted at http://agwaguide.org.
Do trees have an immune system? Is it crazy to consider immunizing trees against a fungal disease? I was brainstorming with a plant pathologist and we are trying to induce protection in trees.
If we had the genome and transcriptome of the fungal pathogen, could a vaccine be useful to "vaccinate" a tree of interest. We are talking about trees with high value, not forest plantation trees.
I am looking to analyze some data coming from brainstorming sessions with community partners. The data is bullet form ideas on an institutional vision. Does anyone have any specific tips for how to analyze this? I'm thinking I can follow a qualitative procedure - but does anyone have anything that worked particularly well for them?

I am developping an economic growth model following Robert Barro's Model in his "Economic Growth" textbook and orientated on his growth determinants.
The majority of them fits into my model pretty well, but I was wondering, what could otherwise influence GDP growth. At the moment, I have variables including consumption, government expenditure, political variables, investment, inflation, capital stock, population, and trade.
It's just a brainstorming question, that I do not forget "important" variables, that would reduce the OVB, improve the fit of the model, and change the interpretation of my variables.
Thank you so far!

I belive that coherence and bicoherence is a carrier of information in the brain.
Also I know the mechnism how to cascade computing on neral network level down to DNA data storage and quantum computing.
Have you read dr Fiels ook about the role of glialcels in the active data processing in the brain ?
Some academics as well as authors shows TRIZ as the best ideation tool for engineering tasks. But, as I saw by a survey, most of design engineers applies mostly Brainstorming. What do you think?
I am studying communication in cross-functional teams during NPD process and stuck with topic of appropriate tools for communication. During NPD process the members exchange huge amount of info, but how to choose right tool?
Sometimes they need info for decision making
Sometimes they need info just to rework it for other purpose.
Specifically, I'm curious about design-based brainstorming or prototyping tools to design either political institutions or social interventions.
