The Research Forums aim to strengthen the transdisciplinary mode of research within the Berlin University Alliance and in Berlin. To this end, innovative formats are developed, new collaborations and networks are formed, practical experience is made possible for scientists and societal stakeholders, and permanent structures are established. In four different Research Forums, transdisciplinary processes are conducted with various groups of societal stakeholders as well as scientists from the partner institutions.
Research Forum Social Cohesion
The Research Forum Social Cohesion supports the transdisciplinary approach of the Exploration Projects Social Cohesion . The six projects explore sub-aspects of the Grand Challenge Initiative on Social Cohesion and are being funded by the Berlin University Alliance from 2020 to 2023.
Research Forum Global Health
Global health is a challenge that Berlin, as an integrated research environment, is also facing. In the Research Forum Global Health, scientists as well as stakeholders from organized civil society, politics, economy, art, and culture participate in a joint knowledge exchange in thematic workshops.
