Inter- and transdisciplinary research is increasingly needed to understand and act on the environmental and societal challenges. However, too often the skills, challenges and learnings are not shared beyond the project. This interactive conference provides an opportunity to better understand what is happening in Wageningen University & Research, who is working on what, and what the possibilities of integrating transdisciplinarity to further societal and scientific impact.
Participation is free, but registration is required.
An interactive morning conference preceding the Wageningen Integration For Impact (WIFI) - WUR (12:00 June 13th- June 14th) on furthering inter- and transdisciplinary research and education at WUR.
Interdisciplinary: research and education that integrates knowledge across scientific disciplines to address complex societal and sustainability challenges
