International Transdisciplinarity Conference 2017

Transdisciplinary Research and Education – Intercultural Endeavours

The International Transdisciplinarity Conference on September 11-15 2017 was co-organized by Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany and the Network for Transdisciplinary Research (td-net) of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences. The overall objective of the conference was to strengthen communities of transdisciplinary research and education, and to create visibility for theoretical, empirical and transformative advances/results. The conference focused on interculturality. Participants were to explore transdisciplinary research and education as intercultural endeavours concerning epistemologies, world-views, practices, and place-based differences. With this emphasis we wanted to bring together representatives of different world regions, institutions, cultures, and communities. We envisaged a space for taking a culturally sensitive look at transdiciplinarity. By doing so we also wanted to explore interfaces and foster the potential of transdisciplinarity to deal with heterogeneity and difference.
