Best Practice in Interdisciplinary Research: Learning from the Neurohumanities / Shaping Conversations on Interdisciplinary Research (SHAPE-ID Webinar Series)
We are pleased to announce the programme for our SHAPE-ID webinar series for the coming months and we invite you to join us for some interesting discussions around interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research involving the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
Date: Tuesday 20th October 13.00 – 14.15 CEST (12.00-13.15 GMT+1)
What can the experiences of researchers working in the emerging area of the Neurohumanities teach us about the challenges and potential of interdisciplinary research between the Arts and Humanities and STEM disciplines? Why engage in such research and how are researchers navigating the significant distances between their respective disciplines? This webinar will invite researchers working in the Neurohumanities to discuss best practices in interdisciplinary research from the perspective of their own experiences working at the interface of the Arts and Humanities and Neurosciences. The case studies will showcase the potential for interdisciplinary research with meaningful roles for Arts and Humanities researchers and inspire researchers to learn about and engage with interdisciplinarity. Professor Jane Ohlmeyer, Principal Investigator of the SHAPE-ID project, Director of the Trinity Long Room Hub and Chair of the Irish Research Council, will chair the discussion.

Shaping Interdisciplinary Practices in Europe (SHAPE-ID)
The Institute of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences (Warsaw) is one of the Partners in the ‘Shaping Interdisciplinary Practices in Europe’ (SHAPE-ID) project which has been awarded funding of €1.5m through European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. SHAPE-ID is the answer to the challenges of the modern world which ought to be approached through interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research. The project will produce practical recommendations for the European Commission. These will be concerned with transdisciplinarity and interdisciplinarity in research, especially in social sciences and humanities. SHAPE-ID is coordinated by Trinity College, Dublin. Other partners institutions are based in Holland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.
