Welcome to a lunch webinar about the call for new applicants to the Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) at SLU. The selected groups of SLU scientists will have the opportunity to develop their ability to work interdisciplinary for eight month during 2024–2025. This webinar is an opportunity to meet other interested researchers to form groups and to ask questions to present day IDA-group members.

The Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) is a programme at SLU where the University's researchers are offered the opportunity to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries on complex issues in the broad field of green transformation. The core of IDA is interdisciplinary research groups who, for eight months, have the opportunity to develop their ability to work interdisciplinary together in an inspiring environment.

This lunch webinar will include information about the call, an interview with the two present IDA-group members Elisabeth Bolund and Adan Martinez Cruz, matchmaking and an opportunity to ask questions.

The aim of the initiative is to increase knowledge of and interest in interdisciplinary research among researchers at SLU, strengthen their ability to address research issues from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective and facilitate collaborations between different departments.

The initiative is continuing for its third year and the call for new applicants to IDA can be found here. The important dates for the call are summarised here.
