Our Massive Open Online Course "Partnering for Change - Linking Research to Societal Challenges" is running now. It is still possible to join the course and learn on your own pace. The MOOC can also be integrated into your curricula, lectures and seminars. Enjoy the exchange with learners from more than 80 countries! Latest start date is 21. June. Sign up here

 
   
 

Td-net Webportal nun auch auf Deutsch und Französisch

 
 

Die meisten Seiten des td-net Webportals für Koproduktion von Wissen sind nun auch auf Deutsch und Französisch zugänglich. Die konkreten Methodenbeschreibungen bleiben in der Originalsprache; zurzeit meist in Englisch. Das td-net Team freut sich auf Beiträge in Deutsch und Französisch! Wer hat eine Methode entwickelt oder angewendet, die wir mit unserer Community von td Forschenden teilen könnten? Hinweise an td-methods@scnat.ch 

 
   
 

Td-net portail en français et allemand

 
 

La plupart des pages du portail web pour la co-production de savoir ont maintenant été traduites en français et en allemand. Les profiles concrets de méthodes restent dans la langue d'origine; c'est-à-dire pour l'instant principalement en anglais. L'équipe du td-net se réjouit d'obtenir de nouvelles contributions en allemand et en français! Qui a développé ou appliqué une méthode que nous pourrions partager avec la communauté transdisciplinaire? Veuillez transmettre les indications à: td-methods@scnat.ch

Transdisciplinary Research Partnerships

 
 

TdResearch is a YouTube channel which shows a series of short video's on promoting ecological transition through transdisciplinary research. Researchers, citizens and stakeholders discuss key methods and design principles of inspiring transition research. The companion website to the "TdResearch" youtube channel provides background information on the short videos. YouTube Channel

 
   
 

A Study on Public Engagement of Science 

 
 

You are invited to participate in a study examining scientific researchers' attitudes, intentions, self- efficacy, and willingness regarding engagement with the lay public about science. This communication and interaction with the general public about science is termed 'Public Engagement of Science' (PES) in science communication literature and has been a topic of discussion in recent years. Through this study, the international network for advancing and evaluating the social impact of science, AESIS, seeks to gain further insight into PES participation and how PES is viewed in the scientific community. To the survey

 
   
 

Strategies to deal with forced hostile collaborations

 
 

How to avoid forced hostile collaborations by identifying an acceptable alternative is described by Kristine Lund in this blogpost. Key constraints points are 1) figure out the motivations and constraints of those forcing the collaboration, 2) play to your strengths and find an alternative research niche where the hostile partner is not a major player, 3) find an equally good or better partner in the alternative research niche, 4) keep lines of communication open with those forcing the collaboration, 5) use the new partner to attract new powerful supporters.

Challenge-Led Research Practices

 
 

Bristol University Press is announcing their new subject collection on Challenge-Led Research Practices, led by Philippa Grand, Publisher for Research Methods and Practices.
Research practices are fast evolving. The rise of interdisciplinarity, the popularity of co-produced research, the ever-increasing importance of impact and the decolonial turn present challenges to traditional approaches to research and provide innovative and pioneering new methods and theories with which to address the challenges of the 21st century.

Providing a richer assessment of research influence and impact

 
 

How capturing diversity in researcher influence & impact is essential for effective interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research is explored in this blog post. Reflective narratives on Julie Thompson Klein's work highlight the richness and range of individual contributions and the need to reward individual strenghts. Using reflective narrative requires attention to 1) contributor selection and 2) synthesis methods.

 
   
 

Project on formative evaluation, roles and science-society-interaction

 
 

The project “Normativity, Objectivity and Quality Assurance of Transdisciplinary Processes” (NorQuATrans) in Hamburg, Germany has now completed its team. Hermann Held (University of Hamburg) and Susanne Schuck-Zöller (GERICS) are the PIs of the project, the staff consists of Markus Dressel (philosopher) and Mirko Suhari (sociologist). Over the next two and a half years, the team will study theoretical and applied aspects of transdisciplinarity. On the applied side, they plan to develop concepts for a formative evaluation of transdisciplinary processes. On the theoretical side, they analyze the entanglement of the roles that different stakeholders may play in transdisciplinary research with normative background assumptions about science and society.
