ECR Handbook – Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Research

In 2022 and 2023, the ITD Alliance Early Career Working Group organised more than fifteen virtual coffee hours with Early Career Scientists. During these sessions, participants discussed challenges, concerns, and shared their experiences. Subsequently, the Working Group compiled a Handbook containing answers to the most frequently asked questions that emerged from these discussions.

The Handbook aims to furnish researchers engaged in TD research, with initial guidelines and advice. It covers aspects such as addressing ethical issues and connecting with the research ITD/TD community. Accessible in both PDF and as a GoogleDoc serving as a living document to continuously incorporate additional pressing challenges in TD/ITD research and gather expertise from a global perspective.
