SHAPE-ID partners contributed to a timely and inspiring panel on multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary dynamics in research and education at the annual European Humanities Conference in Lisbon (and online) on 7 May 2021, addressing questions around the role, responsiblities, and contribution of the humanities to addressing complex global challenges, and what needs to change to maximise this potential.
Principal Investigator Jane Ohlmeyer (Trinity College Dublin) made an invited keynote presentation, Christian Pohl (ETH Zurich) contributed to the panel discussion, and project manager Doireann Wallace coordinated the panel and chaired the session.
A video recording of the full session is now available here.
The second keynote presentation was made by Josep M. Vilalta, Director of the Global University Network for Innovation (GUNi), who introduced GUNi’s important 2019 report Humanities and Higher Education: Synergies between Science, Technology and Humanities. We were joined on the panel by thoughtful and informative contributions from Anne Snick (KU Leuven), Benedikt Löwe (University of Hamburg), Darja Fišer (University of Ljubljana) and Jesús de la Villa (Autonomous University of Madrid).
