SHAPE-ID partners will present at a number of upcoming conferences on inter- and transdisciplinarity taking place in September and October 2019.
Td-net (Network for Transdisciplinary Research) organised its first International Transdisciplinary Conference 11 years ago. Since then, the field has developed considerably and this year’s conference, hosted by the University of Gothenburg (10-13 September), will bring together this growing body of practitioners and researchers who are working on different types of collaborative research to examine the state of the art in both research and practice across sectors and disciplines. Registration is now open, with early bird fees available until the end of June.
For the first time, the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies (AIS) will hold its annual conference outside of North America when it visits Amsterdam in October 2019. Hosted by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies of the University of Amsterdam (24-26 October), the 41st annual conference promises a full programme of talks and panels covering, developing and promoting research, pedagogy, and programmes in integrative and interdisciplinary studies.
The Interdisciplinarity Revisited symposium, jointly organised by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the foundation Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss and the Volkswagen Foundation (3-4 October) will bring together experts from across Europe and beyond to discuss the different concepts and definitions of interdisciplinarity and their application in higher education.
SHAPE-ID partners Bianca Vienni (ETH Zurich), Christian Pohl (ETH Zurich), Catherine Lyall (University of Edinburgh) and Jack Spaapen, who have all been active contributors proposing panels and talks and reviewing proposals for programme boards, will ensure that the SHAPE-ID project reaches new, international audiences when they attend these conferences and symposia over the autumn.
