Interdisciplinary research is in high demand today. Since many current challenges in science, technology and society are characterised by great complexity, it is essential for solving such problems that scientists combine the scientific tools of different disciplines. In addition to the inherently exciting nature of research crossing disciplinary boundaries, the ability to work in an interdisciplinary fashion is also increasingly considered to be a career-asset within and outside science.
Although engaging in interdisciplinary research has multiple values, initiating and conducting such collaborations can be challenging. On the one hand, the lack of a shared understanding of another discipline’s concepts, theories and methods might obstruct the productive exchange of ideas between potential collaborators. On the other hand, techniques for deliberately generating ideas for research collaborations might not be well known.
To enable young scientists to do collaborative research, this workshop will introduce strategies for creating a mutual understanding of each other’s work and for autonomously generating collaborative research ideas.
Participants of this workshop will:
