Highlight: The presentation ceremony for the "swiss-academies award for transdisciplinary research 2015" took place during the conference.

The two goals of the conference were
  • To explore synergies among the "thought collectives" of health, sustainability, and transdisciplinarity, while releasing the full potential of this interaction for Public Health, Sustainable Development, and societal problem solving in general.
  • To bring together the international td-community to critically reflect and advance transdisciplinary research.

The td-net is organising the conference within the 9th European Conference of Tropical Medicine and International Health (ECTMIH) in Basel (6-10 September 2015).
The conference is made possible by Mercator Foundation Switzerland and supported by the European Science Foundation.
