CEC Fellows concept seminar on Capacity Building
An important barrier to interdisciplinary work is the difficulty to communicate over disciplinary boundaries. The seminar series on concepts, of which the seminar on Capacity Building is the fourth, is intended to create a platform for the discussions needed to overcome such barriers.
What are they talking about? Capacity building as research concept
Register here before 21 November.
We will have interdisciplinary presentations to straighten out the concept of Capacity Building as a research perspective.
The seminar on Capacity Building will consist of five short presentations from different research fields and present different ways in which it is understood. The presentations, taking Capacity Building as point of departure, will illustrate how the concept can be used in different fields. There will be ample room for questions and discussion, hopefully generating new and interesting research ideas.

About the seminars
CEC Fellows invites members to four seminars on different concepts during 2019. The invited presenting researchers bring out a basic concept, central for their research, which can be difficult to grasp for researchers in other disciplines. The purpose with the seminars is to meet new people, learn new things and to create an understanding of how to make interesting interdisciplinary research projects that are of interest to everyone involved.
If you have suggestions for concepts to discuss, please let us know!
