Scientist-Practitioner Gap

Scientist-practitioner gap or practitioner-researcher divide denotes the phenomenon that, on the one hand, scientific results or ignored in the field and, on the other hand, problems that occur in the filed are not investigated by scientists.

We primarily focus on the aspect of the phenomenon that is called "lost in translation", i.e., with problems in communication scientific results effectively. Specifically, we investigate the potential of using new media to bridge the divide between research and practice. Bridging this divide, however, is a general aim in all of our research topics.
