When targeted at tackling societal challenges, inter- and transdisciplinary research involves varying points of view, interests or political goals. Ways of how research can be societally relevant need to be identified. Specific tools that help to deal with these challenges and shape collaboration between experts and stakeholders from science and practice in systematic and traceable ways are therefore needed.

The resources provided here are contributed by experts from the international community of transdisciplinarians and related academic fields. Get involved in the network of peers!

Communities of Practice have translated the td-net Toolbox into Japanese and are currently working on a Spanish translation as well. Spanisch.
