Publications addressing transdisciplinarity are steadily increasing

Number of publications per year that include "transdisciplinar*" in the topic (search performed through Web of Science on 12 June 2018)

Every year, td-net observes the publication activities in the field of inter- and transdisciplinarity. With "transdisciplinar*" and "interdisciplinar*" as search words, we perform a topic search (within: title, abstract, author keywords, Keywords Plus®) in the Web of Science database and present the numbers of publications chronologically in charts. In the recent years, the number of publications show an upward trend. Have a look at our > publication radar to see the second chart, displaying the results for „interdisciplinarity“.

Publication on sustainable consumption and transformative teaching

We are pleased to share with you the publication of > A sustainable consumption teaching review: From building competencies to transformative learning. The article written by Marlyne Sahakian and Gill Seyfang addresses transdisciplinary and transformative teaching applied to the field of sustainable consumption and has emerged from a project supported by our former > Sustainable Development at Universities Programme.

U Change: call still open!

Survey on collaborative research and practice

The > Mountain Sentinels collaborative network is working to understand the most important activities and the most significant barriers to success common across collaborative research projects worldwide. The network developed a survey to gather insights from both researchers and practitioners with collaborative experience across all systems (not just mountains). We invite you to take part in this interesting initiative! The survey is available in four languages (English, Spanish, Chinese and French) and takes about 20 minutes to complete. > Take the survey

Proposal on Next EU R&I Framework Programme

On 7 June, the European Commission published its proposal on the next EU Framework Programme on Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe. Horizon Europe runs from 2021–2027 and is expected to have a budget of nearly 100 billion Euro. It is strongly focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals and fosters collaborative research between academics, companies, civil society organisations, and citizens. Transdisciplinary collaboration is therefore at the core of Horizon Europe> More information

I2S News

The May/June i2S News is now available > here. It presents resources for understanding the ‘why? who? when? and how?’ of stakeholder engagement, as well as ‘wicked’ problems. It also provides information on the Intereach network, which aims to “articulate and promote the need for a dedicated career path around interdisciplinary research expertise” and on the Society for Judgment and Decision Making and its related journal. These have all recently been added as resources to the > Integration and Implementation Sciences website.
