Transdisciplinarity at the Faculty of Business and Globalization

Transdisciplinary Research Platforms and Projects

At the Faculty of Business and Globalization, transdisciplinarity is systematically implemented and researched. In transdisciplinary research laboratories this form of cooperation between science and practice is used to investigate complex questions.

To further transdisciplinarity on a scientific level the laboratories and at the Department for Knowledge and Communication Management of Danube University Krems continuously develop this specific approach. Barriers and obstacles emerging during the transdisciplinary processes are taken into account.

Through networking and the development of creative teaching and working methods our students participate jointly in research projects to follow the transdisciplinary approach. Especially since a large part of Danube University Krems students are working professionals specific questions derived from practical areas are implemented.

Why Transdisciplinarity?

Using natural resources, digitalization, economic crises, migration movements or e-governance in a sustainable way: today's complex societal issues require the ability to think in a networked way and to bring the various knowledge potentials from science and practice in a targeted and process-guided manner into relation with each other. Therefore, the Faculty of Business and Globalization pursues the principle of transdisciplinarity in research and teaching cross-linking all departments to process mutual learning between science and society, in order to promote innovation on the one hand and to enable social effectiveness on the other.

Co-Leadership

According to the principle of "co-leadership", legitimate representatives from science and societyjointly share the responsibility for a transdisciplinary project. In contrast to (order-bound) consultancy processes (i.e. developed by consulting firms), no solutions, but instead practical action scenarios for an improved quality of decision making are being developed.
