We hereby cordially invite you to our sixth event of the Geo.X Lecture Series "Introduction to Social Sciences for Natural Scientists"! We are happy to announce that we could engage Prof. Dr. Robert Arlinghaus from HU Berlin as speaker on:  

How to work inter- and transdisciplinary - Personal experiences from cases in fisheries science

In 2006 I have started a research programme that addresses both the social and ecological dimensions of fisheries use, culminating in several interdisciplinary projects. In 2010 my team and I added transdisciplinary, stakeholder inclusive research to our portfolio, coupled with strong science communication and outreach to the public. I will describe the challenges that we faced and the solutions that we found for effective inter- and transdisciplinary research. All my examples come from applied fisheries research and the outlook is mixed, particularly for early career scientists.

The lecture will take place online on Monday, 21st June 2021, at 1:30pm via Zoom. The event has a 1-hour plus(+) format. This means that after the 45-minute talk and a 15-minute Q&A session, you will have the opportunity to officially leave. However, anyone interested is invited to stay for another 30 minutes to discuss the topic further.
