Inter- and transdisciplinary research approaches are essential to solve the complex global problems we face in the 21st century that cannot be solved with disciplinary approaches only. ISST (UPC BarcelonaTech) and ZTG (TU Berlin) organize this international summer school on transdisciplinary methods to provide master and PhD students with the basics of co-designing solutions, co-producing knowledge and co-evaluating the results of the research practice. The summer school ensures the link to the ‘real world’ and involves academic and societal actors from the region to contribute to the solution of these problems. This edition focuses on the current regional sustainability and land use conflicts in the region of Northeast Brandenburg. Master and PhD students from technologically-oriented disciplines (e.g. engineering, planning, environmental studies) as well as students from other fields (e.g. social sciences, law, politics) are invited to apply.
