Preliminary Report of Literature Review on Understandings of Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Research

Deliverable 2.1

Preliminary Report of Literature Review on Understandings of Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Research

Authors: Bianca Vienni Baptista, Maciej Maryl, Piotr Wciślik, Isabel Fletcher, Anna Buchner, Doireann Wallace and Christian Pohl

Work Package: 2

Published: 11 December 2019

Description: This report presents emerging findings from a literature review being undertaken as part of the SHAPE-ID Horizon 2020 project (https://www.shapeid.eu), which addresses the challenge of improving interdisciplinary research (IDR) and transdisciplinary research (TDR) between Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) disciplines and other scientific disciplines. The report describes efforts to build a robust sample of literature, aligning qualitative and quantitative methodologies and beginning to map understandings and factors for success and failure in the literature.

Report on Survey among interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary researchers and post-survey interviews with policy stakeholders

Deliverable 2.2

Report on Survey among interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary researchers and post-survey interviews with policy stakeholders

Authors: Jack Spaapen, Bianca Vienni Baptista, Anna Buchner and Christian Pohl

Work Package: 2

Published: 6 March 2020

Description: Through a qualitative survey among European researchers and interviews with policy makers we hope to enhance knowledge about interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaboration. The survey and interviews were carried out as part of Work Package 2 of the SHAPE-ID Horizon 2020 project (https://www.shapeid.eu), which is also conducting a systematic literature review. We aim to serve the research community and relevant stakeholders in society with new insights, examples of good practice and tips on how to overcome difficulties that might help their current and future interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary endeavours. We focus on Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS), but are also interested in the growing collaboration between these fields and the so-called STEMM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics). We address two main questions: (i) When developing a European interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary project, what are the main difficulties people encounter in realising a good research team that is balanced in terms of the various interests and goals of the different participants, and (ii) Which factors of success and failure do researchers integrating AHSS in larger projects consider relevant for their daily practice of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research?

Final Report on Understandings of Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Research and Factors of Success and Failure

Deliverable 2.3

Final Report on Understandings of Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Research and Factors of Success and Failure

Authors: Bianca Vienni Baptista, Isabel Fletcher, Maciej Maryl, Piotr Wciślik, Anna Buchner, Catherine Lyall, Jack Spaapen and Christian Pohl

Work Package: 2

Published: 31 March 2020

Description: This report presents findings from a literature review and survey undertaken as part of the SHAPE-ID Horizon 2020 project (https://www.shapeid.eu), which addresses the challenge of improving interdisciplinary research (IDR) and transdisciplinary research (TDR) between Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEMM) disciplines. One of SHAPE-ID’s first objectives was to review existing research on IDR/TDR. Through an extensive evidence-scanning exercise drawing on previous work undertaken and complemented by a survey and interviews, the project aimed: (i) to disentangle the different understandings of interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity; (ii) to identify the factors that hinder or help inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration; (iii) to clarify which understandings of IDR/TDR and which factors of success and failure are specifically relevant for integrating AHSS in IDR/TDR.

Matrix for Integration of Learning Cases and Framework of Analysis

Deliverable 3.1

Matrix for Integration of Learning Cases and Framework of Analysis

Authors: Carlo Sessa and Giorgia Galvini

Work Package: 3

Published: 7 November 2019

Description: SHAPE-ID has been funded by the European Commission to explore the challenge of how to better support the integration of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) perspectives into interdisciplinary research with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and other scientific disciplines, including Medicine, particularly in the context of addressing societal challenges. In this context, SHAPE-ID Work Package 3 (WP3) is organising a series of workshops to learn directly from the experiences of researchers from across disciplines, as well as policymakers, funders and representatives from research performing organisations, industry, civil society and the cultural sector. This project deliverable comprises two parts: Section A illustrates the matrix for integration of learning cases and the framework of analysis co-designed with SHAPE-ID partners at a Co-Design Workshop, held at ISINNOVA in Rome, on 13-14 June 2019. Section B illustrates a challenge-oriented research evaluation framework, criteria and tools proposed to evaluate research projects, as well as an evaluation methodology proposed for the learning workshops.
