Transdisciplinary sustainability research in real-world labs: success factors and methods for change

Bergmann, Matthias; Schäpke, Niko; Marg, Oskar; Stelzer, Franziska; Lang, Daniel J. Lang et al. | 2. Januar 2021 | Journal Article

The transdisciplinary research mode has gained prominence in the research on and for sustainability transformations. Yet, solution-oriented research addressing complex sustainability problems has become complex itself, with new transdisciplinary research formats being developed and tested for this purpose. Application of new formats offers learning potentials from experience. To this end, we accompanied fourteen research projects conceptualized as real-world labs (RwLs) from 2015 to 2018. [... The article] combine[s] conceptual and empirical work to a structured collection of experiences and provide a comprehensive account of RwLs. (Abstract)

Start der Plattform tdAcademy: Forschung zur Lösung gesellschaftlicher Probleme und Krisen wird gestärkt

tdAcademy | 19. Juni 2020 | Press Release

Der Bedarf an transdisziplinärer Forschung wächst. Gleichzeitig fehlen in Forschung und Lehre Strukturen und Orte zur Weiterentwicklung und Verbreitung von transdisziplinären Methoden, Konzepten und Kompetenzen. Diese Lücke soll jetzt mit Gründung einer Akademie für transdisziplinäre Forschung geschlossen werden. Die Plattform tdAcademy hat im Juni 2020 ihre Arbeit aufgenommen. Gründungspartner sind: ISOE – Institut für sozial-ökologische Forschung, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg, Zentrum Technik und Gesell-schaft Berlin und Öko-Institut.

Transfer as a reciprocal process: How to foster receptivity to results of transdisciplinary research

Nagy, Emilia; Ransiek, Anna; Schäfer, Martina; Lux, Alexandra; Bergmann, Matthias; Jahn, Thomas et al. | 12. Dezember 2019 | Journal Article

This article is based on qualitative explorative research on four TDR projects. Its results were iteratively derived through project analysis, reflection on insights from the literature and discussions with TDR experts. We propose that transfer is a complex reciprocal process in which different types of knowledge are provided and transferred to other contexts, where knowledge is adapted, enriched and modified.

Societal effects of transdisciplinary sustainability research—How can they be strengthened during the research process?

Lux, Alexandra; Schäfer, Martina; Bergmann, Matthias; Jahn, Thomas; Marg, Oskar; Nagy, Emilia et al. | 10. September 2019 | Journal Article

This paper addresses the issue of heightening the societal effects of transdisciplinary sustainability research. The objective is to explore ways of consciously promoting societal effectiveness in transdisciplinary research. We argue that these possibilities evolve at the intersection between the general project framework and an adaptive shaping of transdisciplinary research processes.
