As the process of recruiting scientists to SLU's new Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) is starting, Marie Stenseke from the University of Gothenburg will give a talk with inspiration and examples of interdisciplinary research. Come, be inspired, meet other interested researchers and brainstorm about possible themes.

The Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) is a new initiative at SLU where researchers with different academic backgrounds will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge of interdisciplinary working methods. The aim of the initiative is to increase the interest in interdisciplinary research among researchers at SLU, strengthen their ability to address research issues from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective and facilitate collaborations between different departments.

The call for applications to the Interdisciplinary Academy will open in May, and is aimed at all researchers at SLU, regardless of research area. The academy itself will start in November 2022 and end in June 2023. During that period, nine physical meetings will be organized in Uppsala, with digital meetings in between.

SLU researchers participating in the Interdisciplinary Academy will commit to devoting 20 percent of full-time to work together on complex issues and immerse themselves in interdisciplinary working methods. The programme will be coordinated by a director with experience in interdisciplinary work and methodology. The work in the IDA-groups can result in applications for larger projects or seed funding, but it is not demanded. Instead, the participants have an opportunity to explore and develop their ability to work interdisciplinary, without feeling obliged to reach a pre-defined outcome.

In this meeting the researchers of SLU are invited to get to know each other, express what they are interested in and start the process of forming IDA-groups.

Organiser

The Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) is a new opportunity for SLU researchers from all faculties. The aim of the initiative is to increase knowledge of and interest in interdisciplinary research among researchers at SLU, strengthen their ability to address research issues from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective and facilitate collaborations between different departments. IDA is initiated and led by SLU Future Food, one of SLU's four future platforms, supported by the NJ faculty.

SLU Future Food is a platform for research and collaboration to develop knowledge, solutions and innovations aimed at ensuring that the entire food system is characterized by economic, ecological and social sustainability to overcome tomorrow's challenges. The research addresses both plants and animals, from the smallest molecules to global systems.
