Phase 3: exploring impact

Watch Christian Pohl introduce the third phase of a transdisciplinary project about jointly exploring ways to impact science and society.

Welcome to Week 5 of our course! In the third phase of a transdisciplinary project, the jointly produced knowledge (and practices) are fed back into science and society.

Targeted products for science and practitioners have to be co-produced and implemented. Such products are like interventions in complex systems that have intended and unintended consequences.

Can you identify this third phase and associated tasks or challenges in your own transdisciplinary projects? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
