Partnerships with actors in civil society, industry, the cultural sector and citizens, are increasingly important to develop societally relevant research. In recent years our understanding of these relationships has evolved from a more limited idea of ‘end users’ to that of ‘co-creators’ of research, necessitating the development of transdisciplinary dialogues. The webinar will invite experts engaged in transdisciplinary work bridging research and society to discuss the importance, benefits and challenges of building transdisciplinary partnerships and co-creation, with examples from their own sectors and projects.
Invited panellists Prof. dr Caroline Nevejan (Chief Science Officer of the City of Amsterdam), Fionn Kidney (Human Insights Lab, Accenture) and Dr Giulia Sonetti (Politecnico di Torino) will present perspectives from their own experience engaging in transdisciplinary research across sectors, followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience chaired by Professor Jane Ohlmeyer (Trinity College Dublin), Principal Investigator of the SHAPE-ID project and Chair of the Irish Research Council.
