COMPLEX SOCIETAL CHALLENGES – A TOUGH NUT TO CRACK
Why transdisciplinary research?
Complex societal challenges are best addressed with an approach bringing together scientists, decision-makers, and affected people. This approach is called transdisciplinary research (TDR).
In TDR, actors cooperate. They analyse the problems, develop visions of desirable futures, and work on the strategies and actions supporting necessary changes. In this video, all the educators explain why they engage in TDR.
