TD-Lab - Laboratory for transdisciplinary research
Launched in 2019 as Research Forums, the TD-Lab of the Berlin University Alliance is the focal point for transdisciplinary research in the Berlin Excellence Network of Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Technische Universität and Universitätsmedizin Charité. The TD-Lab aims to strengthen the transdisciplinary research mode in the alliance and in Berlin.
To this end, innovative formats and methods are developed in the TD-Lab, new collaborations and networks are formed, scientists and social actors are accompanied in transdisciplinary research, and permanent structures are established.
The goal of the TD-Lab is to strengthen transdisciplinarity - on an individual and institutional level. The new transdisciplinary methods developed in the TD-Lab are also introduced into the international community of transdisciplinary researchers.
You will soon find out more about the TD-Lab's portfolio of services here. You can already find out about the previous and ongoing activities below.
