INTREPID WG3 started its journey (first phase 2015-2016) exploring barriers for Inter- and Transdisciplinarity in urban research.

At this first stage case studies were brought in by INTREPID members and jointly analyzed with the aim of identifying barriers in order to discuss enabling conditions to overcome these and thus to define and develop methods and tools:

  • SCIENTIFC PUBLICATION: Having develop a framework for enabling conditions for inter- and transdisciplinary urban research we decided to disseminate it in an edited volume. The contract for this volume as open access was signed in March 2019 with Routledge  – to be published end 2019. In order to facilitate a co-produced edited volume, several meetings (“writeshops”) took place for all authors and editors:
    • Berlin Writeshop (September 2017) 
    • Rome Writeshop (March 2018) (http://www.intrepid-cost.eu/rome-meeting/)
    • Berlin Writeshop (April 2019)

    In the second phase (2017-2019), WG3 focus which consequences the identified enabling conditions have in terms of what kind of skills and competences are needed to be able to established these conditions and should accordingly be integrated into the curricula we are teaching and what kind of spaces are needed for future of universities?

    • MANIFESTO – an urban curriculum. To be signed at the final INTTREPID conference “INTREPID knowledge” in Lisbon on the 28th of March.
      • REPORT: Fokdal, J., Verdini, G. & Bina, O. (2019) The ‘urban’ dimension of ESD (Education for Sustainable Development): Which skills and knowledge future University urban-related curricula should pursue? In: International Commission on Education for Sustainable Development Practice Report
      • SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATION: Fokdal, J., Verdini, G. & Bina, O. (2019) The ‘urban’ dimension of ESD (Education for Sustainable Development): Which skills and knowledge future University urban-related curricula should pursue? To be submitted!
    • NewCastle workshop: “Univer(c)ity – the future space and place of knowledge” (January 2019) (http://www.intrepid-cost.eu/newcastle-school-on-space-and-place-for-the-practice-of-inter-and-transdisciplinarity-within-universities/)
