Tour d’Horizon of Literature 2017

Every year, td-net invites experts in the field to list recent key publications in the area of inter- and transdisciplinarity. The new Tour d'Horizon presents literature published in 2017 with short annotations written by the experts that recommended the publications. We would like to thank the contributors for their inputs and already look forward to renewing the experience next year.

All “Tour d’Horizon of Literature” issues can be found > here.

Junior research group SEE-URBAN-WATER

Since January 2018, the junior research group SEE-URBAN-WATER, led by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jochen Hack (Ecological Engineering), works on the interaction of technical infrastructure systems and urban ecosystems in developing countries by conducting a case study in León (Nicaragua) and currently preparing a second one for comparative purposes in Heredia (Costa Rica). The research group is based at Technische Universität Darmstadt in Germany and strongly cooperates with local stakeholders in both case study areas. Any contributions to the project as well as ideas for future collaborations are welcome.

I2Insights blog

Interested in the top ten tips for collaboration and team science? How about lessons from Latin America on institutionalising interdisciplinarity (also published in Spanish), or competences required for transdisciplinary research and how they can be taught? Would a checklist for knowledge synthesis be helpful? Curious about changes over time in a group’s knowledge synthesis about participatory modelling?
