ITD Conference Mission
This conference aims to empower and equip individuals and groups, including researchers, educators, trainers, facilitators, and coaches to effectively address today’s polycrises. In the context of inter- and transdisciplinary boundary-crossing, peer-to-peer training and education is key, not only within higher education establishments and research institutions, but also across societal and industrial partners. Once empowered and equipped, we believe researchers, practitioners, and organizations will be better able to build and sustain futureproof inter- and transdisciplinary research collaborations. In light of this mission statement, and based on this Call for Contributions, we have formulated three ‘streams’ that help structure the conference and maximize opportunities for all: the fundamental level of theories, concepts, and processes; the practical level of building capacity; and the specific angle of education that forms the core of all capacity-building endeavors.
We are working on the programme, but can already share a preliminary timetable for the conference days. Please note: all this is still a draft and subject to changes.
