Crossing boundaries to address environmental and societal challenges - how to navigate interdisciplinarity?

Solving the world’s most pressing issues requires crossing boundaries – between disciplines, between academia and practitioners. Navigating the treacherous waters of inter- and transdisciplinary research can be immensely rewarding for both scientists and society. But how is it best done? What are the do’s and don’ts? What’s in it for you? Come and meet representatives of leading interdisciplinary teams and learn from their experience!


The event is free of charge, register through this link. Last day for registration is 20th of November. In case of unforeseen circumstances so you will not be able to attend, please announce as soon as possible to lina.nikoleris [at]

This event is followed by a CEC Fellow event in the afternoon – don’t forget to sign up for the afternoon here. Interested in knowing more and becoming a CEC Fellows? Learn more here.
