What is the motivation of the Summer School?
This summer school will bridge the gap between disciplinary PhD-programs and transdisciplinary (TD) research practice by introducing new TD approaches such as Real World Laboratories and TD methods such as .boundary objects or stakeholder dialogues.
Special attention will be given to knowledge integration as this is one of the major cognitive challenges in TD research.
Building a strong network and exchanging experiences between you, as young scientists, and leading international senior researchers will be the main focus in lectures, workshops and open spaces.
