In taking on responsibility for our world and helping our societies change for the better, research and science have an important role to play. To effectively and comprehensively address the complex challenges that our societies are facing, researchers in different fields and disciplines need to work together.

I help academics, research funders, and science policy makers find out what makes interdisciplinary research collaboration a success. Putting in place the right structures, networks and processes is key to fostering inspiring and productive interdisciplinary research cooperation to address today’s challenges.
