Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research involving the participation of Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts (SSHA) with STEM disciplines is key for addressing societal challenges in a meaningful and impactful way. But how can universities, and in particular research and knowledge transfer officers, contribute to supporting inter- and transdisciplinarity?
Doireann Wallace, Interdisciplinary Research Funding Officer at Trinity College Dublin and the former Project Manager for SHAPE-ID, explored this question on November 3 2021 during the ASTP event “The Monthly Online SSHA and Impact Flashlight #7”. Doireann provided an overview of the key findings of the SHAPE-ID project and some initial pointers on how to shape inter- and transdisciplinarity to increase potential impact.
