BECC annual meeting 2019 - Interdisciplinarity in research on Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate

The BECC annual meeting was held October 22nd-23rd in Halmstad. At the meeting keynote speakers with expertise in interdisciplinary and and transdisciplinary research presented their research, followed by participant presentations of interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary research.

The two days were filled with presentation and discussions to give inspiration and disseminate the object of inter- and transdisciplinarity.
We are greatful for the many participants and the organization team that filled the two days!

During the course of the meeting the perception changed on interdisciplinarity which were nicely illustrated by the participants

During the first day we heard different interdisciplinarity perspective of BECC and other projects from in-house Fariborz Zelli on PDF icon Interdisciplinarity from a political science perspective

A set of questions were raised, illustrated and disseminated during the meeting

  • When and how is inter- or transdisciplinary research successful and valuable in the BECC environment?
  • When and how is inter- or transdisciplinary research a failure and less useful in this environment?
  • What are the challenges of inter- or transdisciplinary research on the specific topics of biodiversity, ecosystem services and climate change?

and further disucssed were

  • How do you best organise a project so that you learn across disciplines?
  • How do you best organise a project so that you can deal with misunderstandings that will occur due to e.g. difference in ontology, epistemology, use of concepts methodology?
  • For what purposes and in what situations is interdisciplinarity valuable and necessary?
  • How do you best report on findings and/or methodological development from an interdisciplinary project?

The second day we had the pleasure to have Zora Kovacic with us presenting the challenging and opportunities when educating inter-disciplinarity problem-centred experts. With the home-take message of:

Interdisciplinary cannot be improvised - yet different types of knowledge are expected to "come together"
