September 11-15, 2017, Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany
The International Transdisciplinarity Conference in 2017 was co-organised by Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany and the Network for Transdisciplinary Research of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences.
The overall objective of the conference was to strengthen communities of transdisciplinary research and education, and to create visibility for theoretical, empirical and transformative advances/results. The focus of the conference was on interculturality. Participants explored transdisciplinary research and education as intercultural endeavours concerning epistemologies, world-views, practices, and place-based differences.
With this emphasis we brought together representatives of different world regions, institutions, cultures, and communities. We proposed a space for taking a culturally sensitive look at transdisciplinarity. By doing so, we also explored interfaces and fostered the potential of transdisciplinarity to deal with heterogeneity and difference.
Monday and Friday were dedicated to Training Workshops, Wokshops, Excursions, and Special Meetings.
From Monday evening to Thursday, Panels, Key-Notes, and Sessions took place.
