A webinar as part of the "Shaping Conversations on Interdisciplinary Research" series, organised by the SHAPE-ID project.
Shaping Conversations on Interdisciplinary Research
We are pleased to announce the second in our series of webinars on the integration of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences in inter- and transdisciplinary research. Some of these events will stage broader conversations, with invited panellists from the SHAPE-ID community, consortium and Expert Panel. Others will focus on SHAPE-ID project results and on how to increase the uptake of recommendations from the project.
This webinar will take up one of the recommendations made in our recently published SHAPE-ID Policy Brief: that to increase the participation of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) in interdisciplinary research (IDR) and transdisciplinary research (TDR), policy makers and funders must work to involve researchers more substantially in programme design and evaluation. However, similar recommendations have been made many times already with limited impact. What are the challenges of implementing this recommendation and how can policy makers, researchers and Universities make progress on this front? Is this challenge specific to improving pathways to IDR and TDR or is it a more general problem with the interface AHSS researchers have built with policy makers?
Our invited panel of researchers, policy makers and science policy advisers, including SHAPE-ID’s Dr Jack Spaapen (Senior Policy Advisor at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences), Dr Jennifer Edmond (Associate Professor of Digital Humanities at Trinity College Dublin and President of the Board of Directors of the pan-European research infrastructure for the arts and humanities, DARIAH-EU) and Mary Doyle (TLRH Public Policy Fellow), will discuss these issue with chair Professor Jane Ohlmeyer, followed by an interactive Q&A from the audience.
