Knowledge Transfer: Lessons Learned from Transdisciplinary EU Projects
Dr. Anja Reiz, GEOMAR, Kiel

In transdisciplinary research scientists, society, and decision-makers should be enabled to get engaged in the entire research process. Questions raised in EU project calls can typically only be addressed through the convergence of different scientific communities or disciplines in one research consortium. An increasing number of research questions even necessitates to team up as different disciplines as natural sciences, social sciences, legal sciences and economic sciences. It is obvious that complex research questions that require transdisciplinary investigations do as well have very diverse stakeholders. Accordingly, the team that is in charge of the research project's engagement with society first needs to map the stakeholders in different groups to identify their information/engagement needs. However, it occurs that well-considered and well-planned dissemination action might not reach the favoured stakeholder group. Hence, continuous dialogue within the project consortium and with selected stakeholders, and evaluation of conducted actions is required to improve knowledge transfer to meet stakeholder needs. The lessons learned from two large scale transdisciplinary EU research projects will be reflected by illustrating successful examples and pit falls on how to engage with society.
