Seminar with Sandra Díaz: Working interdisciplinary with biodiversity

Sustainability and environment
Society and economy

At the University of Gothenburg and at Chalmers University of Technology the disciplinary boundaries when it comes to biodiversity research, are still quite solid. Hence, there is a potential for improving cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration. A key question for this seminar is therefore: How can interdisciplinary work on biodiversity be improved in Gothenburg - challenges, hurdles and promising examples? The progress of interdisciplinary approaches, concepts and modes of working in the work of IPBES could serve as a role model and stimulate further development of fruitful and innovative interaction in biodiversity research.
