New in the td-net Toolbox: Theory of change

A theory of change (ToC) is a model of a change process.

Early career scientist transdisciplinary workshop

This workshop is designed together with the team of Swiss TD-Net for late master students, PhDs and early PostDocs for learning and actively training interdisciplinary (ITD) and transdisciplinary (TD) methods. Applicants from every discipline that are familiar with challenges and finding solutions in food production systems (e.g. land scarcity, growing soil degradation, food safety, overexploitation of natural resources and higher ethical demands) or are interested in learning about it are eligible to apply. This workshop aims to enforce the participants ITD/TD understanding of real world problems and to teach valuable methods to pursue ITD/TD projects. It takes place from 6 to 7 May 2019 at the University of Bern. > Application and more information
