Outreach and engagement

Gabriele Bammer and Integration and Implementation Sciences (i2S) are founding members of the new ITD-Alliance (Inter- and Trans-disciplinarity Alliance) which was formally launched at the International Transdisciplinarity Conference, Gothenburg, Sweden. This is a new professional membership association for individuals and institutions involved in inter- and trans- disciplinary research. She was also involved in the early stages of establishing working groups on capacity building and on supporting early career researchers.

Gabriele Bammer served on a confidential US funding panel. She also convened the first meeting of the editorial committee of the Palgrave Communications article collection on “Expertise in integration and implementation for transformative research”.

In September the i2Insights blog (http://i2Inisghts.org), curated by Gabriele Bammer and Peter Deane published a new blog post for the PHXchange by Darren Gray and colleagues on using a cartoon video to achieve research impact (https://i2insights.org/2019/09/17/cartoons-for-research-impact/). Blog posts were also publishing on using discomfort to prompt learning in collaborative teams, as well as on unknown unknowns (which are products of a collaboration with Defence Science and Technology).

Papers accepted/published:

Bammer, G. 2019 ‘Key issues in co-creation with stakeholders when research problems are complex’ Evidence and Policy 15 (3) 423-435 https://doi.org/10.1332/174426419X15532579188099

Progress on research projects

Gabriele Bammer spent two weeks as a senior fellow at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam, Germany developing new collaboration possibilities.

The first project report for a collaboration with Defence Science and Technology to convene a dialogue on unknown unknowns was delivered.

Peter Deane is making good progress selecting a new improved theme for the Integration and Implementation Insights blog, which will hopefully be implemented by year end.
