VP for Research

Developing transdisciplinary capacities in Horizon 2020

Pillar III of Horizon 2020 has been designed in order to attract projects and consortia that optimise transdisciplinary approaches to addressing the Challenges, Calls & Topics outlined by the Commission.

With this in mind Research Support Services and the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences is developing a series of lunchtime workshops (the Tackling Societal Challenges series) devoted to exploring transdisciplinary engagements in the Tackling societal challenges pillar of Horizon 2020 featuring contributors from across, and beyond, the University. The first of these lunchtime sessions Developing Transdisciplinary Capacitites will be held on Wednesday 26th March from 1-3pm (venue to be confirmed). The focus on this session will be on ways in which staff in UCC are currently engaged in trans-disciplinary collaborations and the ways in which they have brought together their research interests/expertise with colleagues from very different research/scientific backgrounds to work on specific projects and topics.
