Transdisciplinarity

At the Leuphana University, transdisciplinarity is understood as a continuous challenge. How can science and research strongly contribute to public welfare? Our aim is to combine practical experience and daily needs with scientific expertise and precision in a fruitful manner. For this purpose, we have established a suitable institutional framework.

In four university wide research initiatives, the Leuphana fosters inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration: education, sustainability, management & entrepreneurship and culture. At the Center of Methodology, scholars work on developing and improving methodologies for successful inter- and transdisciplinarity. Students are guided to find the most suitable methods for writing their thesis.

From 11th to 15th of September, the Leuphana Campus harbours the International Transdisciplinarity Conference 2017. Participants of all five continents will discuss on "Transdisciplinarity Research and Education – Intercultural Endeavours".
