Transdisciplinarity in the Practice of Research By Thomas Jahn
Date of opening: 09 April 2012
The experience of practices of research, especially in the socio-ecological context, has led us to the conception of transdisciplinarity that we present in the rest of this article, a conception that reflects the real state of transdisciplinary research as it is practiced currently, while, at the same time, opening up the possibility of a better understanding of transdisciplinarity,one that can lead to a wider agreement on its nature and purposes.
The seminar is open and we look forward to your participation in the dialogue.
