An inter-disciplinary approach is needed to guarantee successful and legitimate outcomes, encompassing communication, dialogue and mutual learning. Interactions between students and scientists from various disciplines, and with stakeholders, are crucial to put the research into a broader context and to foster understanding and cooperation over scientific and epistemological boundaries.
There is a growing recognition of the need to create participatory management systems for natural resources. Researchers need to be able to collaborate over scientific borders and with policymakers and stakeholders. Consequently, the importance of involving different levels of cross-disciplinary activities in research related to resource management is imminent.
To achieve our goals
- Open seminars will be arranged annually. Stakeholders, researchers and students from outside the Centre will be invited
- Inter-disciplinary PhD courses on relevant topics will be arranged, in collaboration with existing PhD schools at the participating research institutions
