Measure 1.2: Fostering Interdisciplinary Research
The grand challenges of today will not be solved by a single discipline alone - interdisciplinary work that integrates insights and methods from different disciplines will be necessary to provide helpful solutions to big questions. Interdisciplinary research has greatly increased in the past years, however, many interdisciplinary research projects fail to be integrative and remain at a multidisciplinary point of view. Interdisciplinary's potential is not used in that case. We want to investigate how integrative work can be a success. Using a daily diary approach we will investigate both individual factors (e.g., previous experience with interdisciplinarity, openness, disciplinary identity) and organizational factors (e.g., supervisor support, interdependence) and how they affect day-to-day interactions in interdisciplinary teams.
You will find your own topic within the project depending on your interests. You will then be involved in the entire research process - from the literature review, to the preparation of scales and the data collection (this might be already ongoing), to the analysis of data for your research topic and the presentation of your results.
