"Transdisciplinary research (TR) is an emerging field of research in the knowledge society. It relates science and policy in addressing issues such as: global and local environmental concerns, migration, new technologies, public health, socio-cultural change.
This handbook provides, for the first time, a structured overview of the manifold experiences gained in these fields. Twenty-one projects from all over the world present their research approaches, structured along the three phases of a TR project: problem structuring, problem investigation, bringing results to fruition.
Referring to these projects, cross-cutting challenges of TR are discussed, such as: integration, participation, values and uncertainties, learning from case studies, management, education.
A systematic positioning of transdisciplinary research in the development of sciences and humanities, and 15 propositions for enhancing transdisciplinary research situate the contributions in a larger, systematised context. The handbook gives researchers and students an overview of the state of the art in transdisciplinary research."
