Knowledge Frontiers: International Interdisciplinary Research Projects 2018
- 18 months
The complexities of global change and the proliferation of diverse communities of knowledge, practice and intelligence highlight the necessity of collaborative engagement between communities of practice, disciplines, capacities and borders.
This programme supports projects that strengthen existing understanding of the challenges in this context and engage with questions concerning the relationship between expertise, public understanding and policy delivery. It seeks to promote interdisciplinary research and examine encounters between academic, professional and lay knowledge, and how valid knowledge, knowledge associations and evidence are built and developed, communicated and disseminated, and the factors which can serve as barriers to this in different political or cultural settings.
