Pathways to Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Research for the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences: Bridging the Research-Policy Gap
About: Our next webinar on Thursday 25th June will take up one of the recommendations made in our recently published Policy Brief: that to increase the participation of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) in interdisciplinary research (IDR) and transdisciplinary research (TDR), policy makers and funders must work to involve researchers more substantially in programme design and evaluation. However, similar recommendations have been made many times already with limited impact. What are the challenges of implementing this recommendation and how can policy makers, researchers and Universities make progress on this front? Is this challenge specific to improving pathways to IDR and TDR or is it a more general problem with the interface AHSS researchers have built with policy makers?
Format: Webinars will be hosted on Zoom and will take the form of short presentations from panellists followed by an interactive Q&A session with the Zoom audience. Webinars will also be live-streamed on the SHAPE-ID Facebook page.
