Inter- and transdisciplinarity

Addressing complex social issues calls forth research that transcends the boundaries of specialist disciplines and involves the state, industry and civil society. As a matter of course, SCNAT is committed to inter and transdisciplinary cooperation. It strengthens the exchange among the key players in science and promotes the further development of transdisciplinary research.
