What does the transdisciplinary research community want when it comes to building a global and virtual community, as well as capacity?
In developing a new interactive online platform, we surveyed 122 transdisciplinary researchers, mostly from German-speaking countries, and ran an online workshop with 27 early career transdisciplinary researchers from 8 European countries to assess what they would find most effective.
The key needs identified in the survey were to:
- receive and share information on community- and capacity- building activities
- have opportunities to network and discuss within an online community
- share their own research projects and experiences.
