GESA workshop on trans/inter/multdisciplinary contributions

The main aim of this workshop is to encourage doctoral and post-doctoral research across the disciplinary borders and also accounting for kinds of knowledge and know-how which are outside the domain of empirical science.

Participants will learn about the drivers, motives and scope of trans-/inter-/multi-disciplinary approaches and discuss various methodologies, practices and challenges. Participants will exchange experiences and, hopefully, learn from each other.
