Brokering knowledge or advice? The researcher's role in transdisciplinary research

A workshop for early-career researchers at Umeå University and the Swedish University for Agricultural Sciences (SLU)

Transdisciplinary perspectives are at the top of funding and research agencies' agendas. The declared goal is to produce societally relevant knowledge by including diverse actors from outside of academia in the research process.

But how do we facilitate the co-production of knowledge? Do we broker advice or expertise, or create dialogue and listen to others' experiences? What do our stakeholders expect from us as researchers?

In this workshop, we will explore these questions with a focus on environmental issues as an example, and we invite you to reflect on your own experiences and role as a researcher in transdisciplinary settings.

The workshop is funded by Future Forests, an interdisciplinary forest research and communication platform at SLU, Umeå University and Skogforsk, and Future Faculty at the faculties of social sciences and humanities at Umeå University.
