Slides and Podcasts - Transdisciplinary Research on Sustainability 05/23/2013 - 13:08

Slides and podcasts are linked here from presentations given at the Expert Conference Prague, May, Thursday 23rd – Friday 24th, 2013.

This one and a half day workshop invited approximately 50 invited experts from across the EU area who are working in Transdisciplinary Research for Sustainability (TDRS). The event was for professionals from the European Research Area (ERA) organisations and policy areas and for those running (or have run) transdisciplinary research projects on sustainability.

Context: Major EU research programmes are calling for transdisciplinary research to address ‘wicked’ joined up and complex problems – particularly in the area of sustainability. Whilst there is an emphasis on the dissemination of substantive results from funded projects, there is less attention to the sharing of the experiences and lessons learnt from the project processes, problems and issues and strategies developed for dealing with these. This gathering provides an opportunity to share and reflect on issues of TDRS including methodology and management, together with an opportunity to contribute to recommendations to the ERA for the further development of research capacity on TDRS.
