Leading Cross-Disciplinary Research Teams

Activity: Talks and presentationsGuest lecturers


Invited departmental lecture at Research Programme for Medicine, Culture and Society, University of Copenhagen

In this presentation, Prof. David Budtz Pedersen will explore different forms of cross-disciplinary collaboration and present lessons learned from the literature and evaluation of team science. Whether we are talking about inter-, multi-, trans- or anti-disciplinary knowledge, the core of collaboration is interaction and integration of different epistemologies and ontologies. Embedding skills and building capacity to collaborate and integrate diverse branches of knowledge into a consistent research project can be challenging. Drawing on resent studies of interdisciplinary science, the presentation examines best practices for funding, leading and rewarding interdisciplinary team science with a special focus on early-career researchers.
