collaborating on sustainability
The transdisciplinary learning spaces explored in this research project aim to demonstrate to external stakeholders the contribution of universities to global and local wellbeing and thus their relevance and impact in the transformation towards sustainable development. Simultaneously, this transdisciplinary approach can help identify common interests across different areas of the universities and consequently enhance cross-disciplinary partnerships, collaboration, and innovation.
In June 2022 the project kicked-off with a mapping of existing activities that already support and contribute to the SDGs and a Berlin-visit from our partner universities in Latin America.
