The INIT Network for Transdisciplinary and Interdisciplinary Research launches its First Virtual Seminar on Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Horizons on the platform www.interdisciplines.org
Transdisciplinarity in the Practice of Research by Thomas Jahn
Thomas Jahn, Matthias Bergmann , beginning 09 April 2012
The experience of practices of research, especially in the socio-ecological context, has led us to the conception of transdisciplinarity that we present in the rest of this article, a conception that reflects the real state of transdisciplinary research as it is practiced currently, while, at the same time, opening up the possibility of a better understanding of transdisciplinarity,one that can lead to a wider agreement on its nature and purposes.
