Welcome to the SRG Limits and Objectivity of Scientific Foreknowledge: The Case of Energy Outlooks (LOBSTER)


The Shared Research Group (SRG) on Limits and Objectivity of Scientific Foreknowledge: The Case of Energy Outlooks (LOBSTER) was funded in the framework of the German Excellence Initiative by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) from 2010–2015.

The SRG has addressed the reliability of scientific policy advice from a general, methodological point of view, with a special focus on energy predictions and scenarios. This research is now continued in the Institute for Technology Assessment and System Analysis (ITAS) as well as in the Institute of Technology Futures (ITZ).
