Ringvorlesung Science meets society

Transdisciplinary Science: Theory, Practice, Challenges
Prof. Dr. Harald Heinrichs, Leuphana University Lüneburg

Over the past 20 years, in the context of the sociopolitical debate on sustainable development in environmental and sustainability sciences, the perspective of "transdisciplinarity" has developed and gradually established itself. Transdisciplinary science takes the concept of participatory sustainability into account, but goes beyond the interdisciplinary approach that emerged in the environmental sciences since the 1970s. It aims at integrating societal actors beyond the scientific system. The ultimate goal of transdisciplinary research and development is to find practical solution options for complex sustainability problems in collaborative processes and at the same time generate generalized scientific insights. By now, the theoretical foundations of transdisciplinary research are well developed and a lot of practical experience has been gained. In the lecture series, theoretical considerations will be presented and own practical experiences with transdisciplinary projects will be discussed. The potential, limits and challenges of transdisciplinary (sustainability) science will be pointed out. Finally, an outlook will be given on newer (art-based) methods that can help to overcome deficits of previous transdisciplinary approaches.
Moderation by Dr. Annegret Kuhn
