Principles for Designing Transdisciplinary Research
by Christian Pohl and Gertrude Hirsch Hadorn, 2007
Publisher: München, oekom verlag
"In the information or knowledge society, there is a need for
transdisciplinary research, i.e. research that deals with complex
life-world problems. Transdisciplinary projects aim to come up with
practice-oriented solutions that serve what is perceived to be the
common good. In order to achieve this, they transcend disciplinary
boundaries and include the perspectives of public agencies, the business
community and civil society in the research process. This process is
therefore particularly challenging for those involved."
