British Academy calls for evidence for new interdisciplinarity project

News •

The British Academy has today launched its call for evidence for a new project on interdisciplinarity in research and higher education.

The call for evidence will ask individual academics, university management, funders and publishers about their experiences of engaging with interdisciplinarity, the success stories and the challenges.  The project will investigate:

•    how interdisciplinary research is carried out

•    the demand for interdisciplinary research and research skills

•    how academics can forge interdisciplinary careers

•    whether the right structures are in place to support interdisciplinarity across the research and higher education system.

While the focus is on research, it will also investigate the relation between interdisciplinarity in teaching and research, from the undergraduate level up. And while the focus is on universities, the project will be concerned with the relation between interdisciplinarity in universities and in the wider economy.

The deadline for submitting evidence is 26 June 2015.

Further information, rhe questions for the call for evidence and the terms of reference for this project can be accessed on the British Academy website
