Learning through failure in inter- and transdisciplinary projects
Two TD colleagues are editing a book on failure in inter- and transdisciplinary projects. They have created a survey that is designed to gain insight into experiences of failure in inter- and transdisciplinary projects and how reasons for failure in these projects may differ from collaborative projects that do not cross disciplinary boundaries. The survey closes September 5. > Complete the survey

Building the Scientific Mind
Building the Scientific Mind is a program of transdisciplinary exploration, research, reflection & development. The program is currently coming to an end as it culminates in the publication of a multi-author volume, expected to come out with Brill Publishers in late September or early October 2019. The title of the book is " Seeking Understanding: The Lifelong Pursuit to Build the Scientific Mind."
