Optimization Methods in Science and Technology

The OPTIMIST platform, Optimization Methods in Science and Technology, is an initiative of the University of Belgrade, Serbia and the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. The goal of the collaboration is a comprehensive investigation of structures of scientific research groups and their impact on the efficiency of scientific knowledge acquisition. OPTIMIST includes researchers working in formal philosophy, science policy, computer science, and psychology.

As part of this effort we recently launched a survey for researchers in laboratories around the world, including Fermilab and Rutherford Lab. The goal of the survey is to better understand the motivations and preferences of scientists. This way we gain insights that help to maximize their efficiency by improving the quality of communication and the work environment.
