Welcome to the series of lunch webinars on interdisciplinary science at SLU. In this webinar, Jessica Abbott, known from Swedish television's popular science program "Ask Lund", senior lecturer at evolutionary ecology at Lund University, and a previous partcipant in a Tema-group at the Pufendorf Institute, will talk about how interdisciplinarity has affected academic careers.
The Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) is an initiative at SLU that was launched in the spring of 2022. During an eight-month period, researchers with different academic backgrounds have the opportunity to jointly increase their knowledge and skills on interdisciplinary working methods. The aim of IDA 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.
As part of the initiative, the Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) hosts a series of lunch webinars on interdisciplinary science and how the researchers at SLU can benefit from developing their contacts with scientists at other departments. In this webinar, Jessica Abbott will talk about how interdisciplinarity has affected academic careers.

The Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) provides an oportunity for SLU researchers from all faculties to increase their knowledge of and interest in interdisciplinary research and to strengthen their ability to address research issues from an interdisciplinary approach. IDA is initiated and led by SLU Future Food, one of SLU's four future platforms, and is also 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.
