Interdisciplinarity in research programming and funding cycles

Interdisciplinarity in research programming and funding cycles

21st century challenges are characterized by high potential impact, complexity and uncertainty. Understanding and addressing these types of challenges is an essential pre-requisite for meeting sustainability objectives and policies, and it can only be achieved through greater interdisciplinarity. This in turn requires significant changes to research programming and funding cycles at the national, European and international levels.

Objectivos: 
<p>INTREPID's <strong>overall aim </strong>is to better understand how to achieve more efficient and effective interdisciplinary research in Europe, in order to enhance our capacity to meet Europe's Grand Societal Challenges. It identifies <strong>three challenges</strong>, combining theoretical and practical dimensions: 1) reflecting and learning about interdisciplinarity; 2) building networks and collaboration among different research communities and the funding community; 3) enabling interdisciplinarity beyond structural, institutional and cultural barriers.</p>
