Principles for Designing Transdisciplinary Research


Principles for Designing Transdisciplinary Research

by Christian Pohl and Gertrude Hirsch Hadorn, 2007

Publisher: München, oekom verlag




"In the information or knowledge society, there is a need for transdisciplinary research, i.e. research that deals with complex life-world problems. Transdisciplinary projects aim to come up with practice-oriented solutions that serve what is perceived to be the common good. In order to achieve this, they transcend disciplinary boundaries and include the perspectives of public agencies, the business community and civil society in the research process. This process is therefore particularly challenging for those involved."
