ESF Panel "Online tools to support transdisciplinary research" at ITD 2015 Conference

The International Transdisciplinarity (ITD) Conference brings together the international community of transdisciplinary scholars and aims at collectively advancing and improving theory and practice of transdisciplinary research. It is organised by the Network for Transdisciplinary Research (td-net).

The ESF Scientific Review Group for the Social Sciences is sponsoring a panel Online tools to support transdisciplinary research at the ITD 2015 Conference: Sustainability and Health: emerging topics and new challenges for inter- and transdisciplinary research (8-10 September 2015, Basel (CH)). Online toolboxes are increasingly being made available to researchers in social, natural and medical science domains who are involved in inter- and trans-disciplinary research. The developers of five such toolboxes will be brought together by the panel to present the toolboxes and to explain which is best for a particular aim. The panel will be moderated by Professor Julie Thompson Klein (Wayne State University, USA). Speakers are:

  • Professor Gabriele Bammer (Australian National University, Canberra)
  • Dr Kara Hall (The National Cancer Institute, USA)
  • Professor Catherine Lyall (University of Edinburgh, UK)
  • Professor Rick Szostak (University of Alberta, Canada)
  • Dr Christian Pohl (ETH Zurich and Co-director td-net)
