Moderated by Gabriele Bammer
Professor of Integration and Implementation Sciences at the Australian National University

Interested in learning how to undertake co-design and integration in transdisciplinary research? And in implementing the findings in policy and practice change?

This three-hour online workshop for Belmont Forum Collaborative Research Actions (CRAs) will provide a framework, plus essential concepts and methods, for addressing sustainability challenges, using inputs from multiple academic disciplines and other relevant stakeholders. Such transdisciplinary research is growing in prominence, yet most teams undertaking it lack  access to the full range of expertise required for successful projects. This workshop aims to help close that gap.

The workshop will focus on:

  • co-design and other forms of effective participation in establishing and undertaking transdisciplinary research
  • integration across the range of diversity existing in teams, including in knowledge, assumptions, interests, values, and personalities
  • designing the research for effective implementation of the findings and achievement of impact in policy and /or practice change in government, business and/or civil society.

Participants can expect to:

  • learn about the integration and implementation sciences (i2S) framework which aims to provide a comprehensive approach to undertaking transdisciplinary research
  • spend reflective time locating their own expertise within that framework, highlighting their strengths and areas where it would be beneficial to either further develop their own expertise or collaborate with others
  • learn about a range of concepts and methods for co-design, integration and implementation, as well as sources for additional concepts and methods
  • interact with other participants from new and long-standing Belmont Forum CRAs during and after the session.

The workshop will be held at three separate times to accommodate participants in different time zones.
The dates and times are:

Session 1: May 25, 2020 – 3:00-6:00 AM UTC (designed to work for Asia through to Oceania morning through to early evening)
