Frameworks for Transdisciplinary Research

This new follow-on column will focus on frameworks for transdisciplinary research, featuring ways of systematically approaching transdisciplinary research.

Framework #1: Principles for Designing Transdisciplinary Research

This framework consists of a set of principles from the td-net (Network for Transdisciplinary Research) of Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences. A series of case studies in the Handbook of Transdisciplinary Research (Hirsch Hadorn et al. 2008) shows how these principles can be implemented. The principles are general guidelines for addressing key challenges of transdisciplinary research. The aim is to help transdisciplinary researchers plan and implement their investigations.

The principles are structured along the three phases of transdisciplinary research:

1. problem identification and structuring;
2. problem analysis;
3. "Bringing results to fruition", in other words, implementing research in practice-oriented solutions for the common good.

You can download the Framework #1 here (pdf file).
