Interdisciplinarity in Environmental research
This course gives an introduction in how interdisciplinary environmental research can be conducted. As a research area, environmental science is based on the notion that complex environmental problems typically demand an interdisciplinary approach to be holistically understood and potentially solved. In this context, interdisciplinarity denotes both collaborative efforts between scientific disciplines and between scientists and a variety of societal actors. During the course we will revise whyinterdisciplinary research across these dimensions is needed and how it can be pursued.
The teaching is carried out in the form of reading assignments, lectures, group-and individual assignments.
