ISSC-NKGCF-ESSP-ICSU workshop, supported by DFG, discusses the fundamentals of integrated research

Despite the growing demand for integrated research, there is little clarity and agreement around the concept and its methodology. To address this problem, the ISSC, the German National Committee on Global Change Research (NKGCF), the Earth System Science Partnership (ESSP) and the International Council for Science (ICSU), with the support of DFG, convened an international workshop on the fundamentals of integrated research. Under the title ‘Integrated Global Change Research: co-designing knowledge across scientific fields, national borders and user groups’, the workshop (7-9 March 2012, Berlin) covered perspectives and examples of best practice in scientific (between disciplines), international (between countries and regions) and sectoral (between different stakeholders) integration.

Workshop outcomes will feed into the design of the 10-year research initiative “Future Earth – Research for Global sustainability”, currently being developed by the ISSC, ICSU and the Belmont Forum, together with UNU, UNEP, UNESCO and WMO as an observer. [ more… ]
