Toolkit Inventory

The toolkits featured in the toolkit inventory are collections of methods, procedures, concepts, heuristics and/or other resources that can be used in designing and implementing interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary processes in research, practice or education.

The toolkit inventory is an ongoing project of the ITD Alliance working group Toolkits & Methods. It provides an overview over toolkits for collaborative modes of research, debates how to adequately characterise toolkits and tools, and explores what we can learn from such a characterisation.
