Speaker: Junwen Luo

I will expound the “design-carrying out- transcription-interpretation” process of interviewing the three big umbrella research institutions: Max Planck Society, Helmholtz Association and Chinese Academy of Sciences.  The differences between the originally settled framework and the actual experiences result in my rethinking and  adjustment of expected answers from interviewees. The interpretation of those heterogeneous data contributing to comparative analysis will be discussed openly.
