Plenary talk: Locating TD within integrated science - what is TD research, when is it a relevant and appropriate research method?

TD spectrum: from stakeholder consultation to full co-production. Challenges of doing TD (e.g. questions of cultures, vocabulary), demonstrating how the techniques and principles help address these challenges.

Flash talks

Examples on real-life TD projects. Discussion.

  1. Science-Based Targets. How can science influence real-life business decisions? Suzie Wood, Carbon Disclosure Project.
  2. Example to be addressed in Actor constellation exercise (tba based on participant’s expertise).

Plenary talk: Steps of designing a TD research project

  • Main phases of a transdisciplinary research project
  • Main steps to develop a stakeholder interaction plan.
    (Stakeholder and context analysis, co-designing the research problem, goals and questions, missing knowledge for achieving societal goals, identifying promising methods and approaches for TD knowledge co-production, reflections about resources and roles)
