Description

The project will investigate:

• how interdisciplinary research is carried out

• the demand for interdisciplinary research and research skills

• how academics can forge interdisciplinary careers

• whether the right structures are in place to support interdisciplinarity across the research and higher education system.

While the focus is on research, it will also investigate the relation between interdisciplinarity in teaching and research, from the undergraduate level up. And while the focus is on universities, the project will be concerned with the relation between interdisciplinarity in universities and in the wider economy.
