The following are reports and websites that may be useful to those interested in inter- and transdisciplinary research. In some cases SHAPE-ID partners have been involved in their production but they are not project outputs. See Outputs for SHAPE-ID policy briefs, reports and other publications.

This report arose from a one day intensive workshop co-hosted by Trinity College Dublin and Dublin City University in June 2016 supported by funding from the Irish Research Council. The aim of the workshop was to explore how Interdisciplinary Research (IDR) can enable researchers to achieve deeper impact for their work than would be otherwise possible and to draw recommendations from key stakeholders within the academic community on the island of Ireland as to how IDR might be better supported.

Monitoring the development of SSH as a cross cutting issue is a commitment made under the Horizon 2020 Programme. The 4th monitoring report on SSH integration in H2020 published in February 2019 examines a range of indicators, such as budget allocation to AHSS partners, qualitative aspects of projects, performance of disciplines and sectors involved and countries participating both as participants and coordinators.

td-net is the primary Swiss contact point for researchers and funders in the field of inter- and transdisciplinary research and teaching. td-net advances mutual learning between inter- and transdisciplinary researchers and lecturers across thematic fields, languages and countries and thereby supports community building. As a centre of competences td-net collates expertise, methods and tools for coproducing knowledge, thus supporting inter- and transdisciplinary projects in research and teaching.

The methods and tools offered by the td-net toolbox specifically focus on jointly developing projects, conducting research and exploring ways to impact in heterogeneous groups. They are intended to help shape collaboration between experts and stakeholders from science and practice in systematic and traceable ways.
