On 29 November 2016, Future Earth Ireland, supported by the RIA and the EPA, organised a workshop on the topic: Doing Transdisciplinary Research: Lessons from the Front Line.

The aim of the event was to provide an update on the activities of Future Earth and to provide an opportunity for an exchange of views on the challenges and opportunities when one is embarking on transdisciplinary research. The report from the workshop is now availabe to download and we've developed an accompanying infographic.
