Global Alliance for
Inter- and Transdisciplinarity
Addressing complex problems and societal needs
Connecting actors and scales to advance collaborative modes of research and education
Increasing visibility and coalescing work currently dispersed across continents
Building capacity for Inter- and transdisciplinary research and education
The purpose of the Global Alliance for Inter- and Transdisciplinarity (ITD Alliance) is to strengthen and to promote the global capacity and the calibre of collaborative modes of boundary-crossing research and practice.
Alliance what for?
The goal of the ITD Alliance is to link networks, associations, institutions, and individuals with shared interest in interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary theories, methods, and practices for addressing complex problems and questions. It increases visibility and coalesces work currently dispersed across the world by catalysing greater collaboration for societal problem solving and understanding of complex issues while promoting inter- and transdisciplinarity.
The ITD Alliance offers a home base for all institutions and individuals engaged in collaborative modes of research.
The ITD Alliance is a membership-based organisation composed of a dynamically growing community of experts and institutions engaged in collaborative modes of research and education. The ITD Alliance is open for all institutions and individuals engaged in and willing to promote collaborative modes of research and education.
All institutional and individual members contribute to strengthening the Alliance in order to advance collaborative modes of research and education globally. Members’ benefits include access to ITD Alliance activities and working groups, reduced ITD conference fees, increased visibility, and more.
The working groups are an important pillar of the ITD Alliance and the main space to actively engage with other members. S Self-organised groups of experts and interested members address specific fields, thereby contributing to and benefitting from globally distributed expertise and experience. Currently, four working groups are active: Toolkits and Methods, Integration Experts*, Early Career Inter- and Transdisciplinarians*, and Capacity Building* (*currently in the process of formal association).
