Transdisciplinary Research on Sustainability in Europe: generic issues
Expert Conference in Prague, Thursday 23rd – Friday 24th May 2013
The EU FP7 Converge Project and Charles University Environment Centre are pleased to invite you a two day expert conference on Transdisciplinary Research for Sustianability (TDRS). The conference will be held in Prague, on May 22 to 23 inclusive.
The background to the conference is that major EU research programmes are calling for transdisciplinary research to address ‘wicked’ joined up and complex problems – particularly in the area of sustainability. Whilst there is an emphasis on the dissemination of substantive results from funded projects, there is less attention to the sharing of the experiences and lessons learnt from the project processes, problems and issues and strategies developed for dealing with these. This gathering provides an opportunity to share and reflect on issues of TDRS including methodology and management, together with an opportunity to contribute to recommendations to the ERA for the further development of research capacity on TDRS.

With 60 coauthors and based on discussions with over 2700 individuals in communities across Asia, Africa and Europe, this report provides a good snapshot of current conditions and thinking in relatively underprivileged communities.
Feedback on this on-going project is welcome
