Under the direction of the leader, Dr Marén Schorch (sociology and socio-informatics), seven members of the junior research group KONTIKAT (funded by the Federal Ministry for Research and Education (BMBF, 2017-2021)) present their reflections on the Covid19 pandemic and its implications for our research after the first months of the pandemic (in August 2020) from multiple disciplinary perspectives: sociology, economics, information science, and media studies. Our research focuses on investigating „civil and business continuity by means of socio-technical networking in crisis“. The group is one out of five groups in the BMBF funding program under „Civil Security – Promoting young researchers and their interdisciplinary competencies“.

Unter der Leitung von Dr. Marén Schorch (Soziologie und Sozio-Informatik) reflektieren Mitglieder der BMBF Nachwuchswuchsforschergruppe KONTIKAT ihre Erkenntnisse nach den ersten Monaten der Covid19 Pandemie im August 2020 aus den jeweiligen disziplinären Perspektiven: der Soziologie, (Sozio-)Informatik, Medienwissenschaft und Ökonomie. Unsere Forschung fokussiert auf die „zivilgesellschaftliche und betriebliche Kontinuität durch sozio-technische Vernetzung in Katastrophenlagen“. KONTIKAT ist eine von fünf Forschungsgruppen aus dem BMBF Programm „Zivile Sicherheit - Nachwuchsförderung durch interdisziplinären Kompetenzaufbau“. Ausführliche Informationen zu den Forschungsaktivitäten der Gruppe und Publikationen finden Sie auf unserer Website:
Reflection on the first months of the Covid19 pandemic from multiple disciplinary perspectives: sociology, information science, media science, economics. The authors are members of the BMBF junior research group KONTIKAT (full title: „Civil and business continuity by the means of socio-technical networking in crisis“, 2017-2021).
The group is one of the five groups in the BMBF funding program under „Civil Security – Promoting young researchers and their interdisciplinary competencies“. In KONTIKAT, we are researchers from the fields of sociology, computer science (CSCW and socio-informatics), media science, economics (management, SME, applied statistics) as well as applied linguistics. All members work on their respective thesis (PhD or habilitation). The shared research goal is the identification of the existing insights of continuity in everyday life, but also in times of crisis – dealing with the civil society in general, but small and medium sized enterprises (SME) in particular. Due to the diversity, but also the complexity of our research topics and fields, we use quite a broad range of empirical methods: qualitative field studies, representative, quantitative surveys, social media and social network analysis, participative concept development, the design of socio-technical prototypes and their long-term evaluation in the practical field. Generally, we aim at supporting self organisation, networking, assistance and communication in order to be better prepared in case a crisis strikes.
