The RG Self-Organisation is engaged with the scientific concept of "self-organisation", which is also used as a paradigm for social contexts and became a transdisciplinary central concept of modern science. The Reseach Group approached the concept with an interdisciplinary disambiguation, for instance in interviews with "practitioners of self-organisation", as well as from an epistemological and a history of science perspective.
The Research Group conducted interviews with academics on the topic of self-organisation, started a survey among NGOs and conceptualised a literature database for the Junge Akademie.
The RG Self-Organisation organised lectures and two internal symposiums.
The RG published its findings in one anthology and two papers.
