CEC Fellows concept seminar on Resilience

temple with overgrowing tree
Seminar
An important barrier to interdisciplinary work is the difficulty to communicate across disciplinary boundaries. The seminar series on concepts, of which the seminar on Resilience is the fifth, is intended to create a platform for the discussions needed to overcome such barriers.

What are they talking about? Resilience as research concept

Register here before 24 February. 

About

We will have interdisciplinary presentations to straighten out the concept of Resilience as a research perspective.

The seminar on Resilience will consist of four short presentations from different research fields and present different ways in which it is understood. The presentations, taking Resilience 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 2020. 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!
