Join us for a RENEW Partner Forum event to learn together about inter- and transdisciplinarity, co-design, and related practices, and to feed into the co-creation of our Collaborative Practice Guide.
Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaboration – that is, research reaching across disciplines and beyond academia – are key to achieving effective biodiversity renewal, but can be challenging to undertake in practice.
RENEW Theme X3: Collaboration in Practice aims to determine the learning about inter- and transdisciplinary working that results from RENEW and prior investments to facilitate the spread of its benefits and good practice in research and delivery organisations. Based on a review of the academic literature and ‘best practice’ reports on interdisciplinarity and related modes of collaboration, as well as initial findings of our study of RENEW and previous projects, we have developed a Collaborative Practice Guide, intended as a ‘living’ resource for RENEW members, partners, and wider communities to use and feed into, with several versions planned through the project lifetime.
Join us for a Partner Forum event to learn together about inter- and transdisciplinarity, co-design, and related practices, and to feed into the co-creation of our Collaborative Practice Guide!
The current version of the Practice Guide and prompt questions will be circulated in advance. During the event, partners will be invited to discuss and share feedback, experiences, know-how, hopes and expectations of collaboration, so that we can learn from each other, and to inform a new version of the Practice Guide that reflects partner expertise, needs and concerns, and that works for diverse people, organisations and contexts.
All RENEW partners are welcome, including those new to inter-/transdisciplinary collaboration. Registration numbers are capped at 30, but if demand is high we will run further iterations of this event.
Registration is via Eventbrite – if you are a RENEW partner and have not yet received the link, please get in touch with Emma Zimmerman.
