INTREPID is a 27 country network with the overall aim to better understand how to achieve more efficient and effective interdisciplinary research in Europe, in order to enhance our capacity to meet contemporary global (urban) challenges characterised by increasing complexity and uncertainty.
In order to better understand how to achieve more efficient and effective interdisciplinary research in Europe, three challenges and objectives are identified, combining theoretical and practical dimensions:
- Challenge 1 – UNDERSTAND CHANGE:
To reflect and learn about what needs changing in the programming and funding cycle.
- Challenge 2 – CRITICAL MASS:
To build networks and cooperation – bringing together research communities, policy makers and the funding community, to strengthen ERA’s capacity for ID.
- Challenge 3 – ENABLE CHANGE:
To develop solutions that enable interdisciplinarity: beyond structural, institutional and cultural barriers with a particular focus on urban-related practice
