Advice on conducting transdisciplinary research
I recently came across this interesting blog post that provides information on resources that are essential to support the conduct of transdisciplinary research. We have all been told that cross-disciplinary collaborations are increasingly becoming necessary in order to obtain research grants and make new scientific advances. However, many disciplines exist in silos and it can be difficult to get started. The blog post includes mention of the importance of relationships as a resource in transdisciplinary research, emphasizing trust as a key component. This is an often overlooked area of key importance that crosses into all disciplines.
