INTREPID 1st Action Workshop and WG meetings, Lisbon 25-27 November 2015
INTERDISCIPLINARITY: WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?
The workshop focused on presenting and discussing:
- our collection and review of the diversity of definitions of interdisciplinarity,
- tracking interdisciplinarity in both funding schemes and scientific literature /with a focus on urban literature/ and
- synthesizing our joined understanding on interdisciplinarity within the INTREPID consortium.
We thus alternated between keynote presentations with panel discussions and smaller break out groups. We framed around the workshop two runs of questionnaires to track whether the definition of interdisciplinarity of the consortium members changed during the workshop.
During the workshop we benefited from the critical input of international scholars intervening as keynote speakers.
Interdisciplinarity: from myths & confusions to (analytical attention to) diversity & complexity
