Inhalt Participants will work in small, interdisciplinary groups on pre-selected topics of sustainability research. The topics will be linked to an on-going research project ‘Mobility Futures 2050’. The group work will mainly build on existing studies; the student groups will assess and link scientific literature from the different disciplines and combine these studies to a consistent interdisciplinary review on a given topic. The emphasis is thus on identifying relevant literature, specifying the research question and combining disciplinary debates to an overall perspective. The results will be fed into the scenario modelling process in the course “Integrative Methods” given by Prof. Burger, hence there will be interaction between the two courses. Attending both can be an add-on, but is not a requirement.
To this end, participants will get both a joint supervision focusing on how to combine disciplinary approaches and a group-specific supervision focusing on the topic set for the group work.
Lernziele Participants learn to work in an interdisciplinary group on a topic that is linked to sustainability research. They acquire practical knowledge regarding the interfaces between disciplines in sustainability research and methods for combining perspectives from different disciplines. Further, they gain knowledge about relevant ecological, economic and societal factors of the mobility system in Switzerland. In addition, participants expand their skills in team and project management.
