International Transdisciplinarity Conference 2017

Transdisciplinary Research and Education – Intercultural Endeavours

September 11 - 15, 2017

The International Transdisciplinarity Conference in 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 focus of the conference was on interculturality. Participants explored transdisciplinary research and education as intercultural endeavours concerning epistemologies, world-views, practices, and place-based differences. With this emphasis we brought together representatives of different world regions, institutions, cultures, and communities. We created a space for taking a culturally sensitive look at transdiciplinarity, explored interfaces and fostered the potential of transdisciplinarity to deal with heterogeneity and difference.
