Danube Universität Krems

and worldwide as a hybrid event

Main Event

Postponed to 2021 as a physical event, the 1st Global Transdisciplinarity Conference commenced in fall 2020 with a series of virtual pre-meetings with a selected group (invitation only) of international scholars from diverse disciplines, linked by a strong commitment to science-society-collaboration (SSC) and knowledge integration.

Under the umbrella of systems and complexity sciences these pre-conferences brought together a core group of researchers interested in social transformation, innovation and the role of academia and institutions of higher education in the transition towards a fair and sustainable global human-environment coupled system under the One Health-paradigm.

The main conference will be held in fall 2021 in Krems an der Donau (Austria) at Danube University as well as its scenic surroundings in the World Heritage Region of Wachau. It will be an intense, three-day working and networking experience designed to both give ample space for individual exchange as well as to building a common understanding of the possibilities, challenges and advances in the field of Science Society Collaboration.

To bring as much as possible of the experience to audiences that may not be able to attend in person, the conference is set up as a hybrid event, streaming via the internet and giving tele-participants an opportunity to contribute and profit.
