Research methods and tools for transdisciplinary research

This page provides references to hands-on research tools that can serve as inspiration when conducting transdisciplinary research. The focus here is mainly on presenting “Knowledge Integration Tools”, as illustrated in the figure below. An excellent overview with a stronger focus on “Co-production Tools” is provided by the USYSTdLAb td-net toolbox. For additional background, you can also consult the short vade mecum on transdisciplinary research tools for Master/Phd/Post-doc research.
