After some recent experiences, here some thoughts on patient involvement in research, in particular for my colleagues in patient advocacy. A 🧵
An increasing number of grant agencies ask for patient involvement in research projects. That's usually after political pressure, like when evaluations show that the public doesn't seen the value of innovation and research- like with #Horizon2020
Or when people realise that vested interests of diverse parties prevent progress and that having the very person in whose interest everyone *claims* to act in the room tends to unblock things....

We are in the midst of a huge technology revolution. In the 2010s, costs for solar PV have decreased by 85%, for wind power by 50% (@REN21 ), and batteries are repeating that pattern. Solar and wind are already the cheapest electricity option in most parts of the world.
However, electricity currently only accounts for 20% of global final energy, because it is the most costly energy carrier. The remaining 80% non-electric are mostly fossil-based. Transitioning non-electric fuels to low-carbon will take much longer than decarbonizing electricity.
We all grew up in a world where firms and consumers pay a lot more for one kWh of electricity than for any other energy carrier. Electricity is the most costly energy carrier, because it is produced by burning fossil fuels at substantial conversion losses.

Neues von Denise "Umgestaltung der Gesellschaft" Feldner @dfeldner1.

Die #4IR Lobbyistin berät das Innenministerium, nennt sich "Corona-Architektin" obwohl sie eigentlich Juristin ist und meint, am besten zu wissen, in welche Richtung sich unsere Gesellschaft entwickeln sollte.
Frau Feldner besuchte kürzlich für unser aller Wohl auch das #WorldHealthSummit. Die Formulierung von #HealthSecurity als "soft underbelly of #democracy" ist zugegebenermaßen etwas eigenwillig: Als ob die Demokratie auf einem "weichen Unterbauch" überhaupt stabil stehen könnte.
Frau Feldner ist zudem glühender China-Fan und hält Europäer für eine Art ungehobelte Barbaren, die zu hygienischerem "Verhalten in der Gesellschaft" erzogen werden müssten. Sie spricht von einem dauerhaften "Leben in der Pandemie" und der Notwendigkeit von Überwachungs-Software:

Art 4 of #HorizonEU regulation on the general structure states:

"#SocialSciences and #Humanities (#SSH) shall play an important role across all clusters”

There will be Clusters on Health, Society, Security, Digital, Climate/Energy/Mobility & Food/Agri/Env
