Catalyst Research Seminar - Interdisciplinary Research for Innovation: Myths, Facts and Case Studies
Wednesday, 3 July 2013 at 09:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Lancaster University Management School, Lecture Theatre 2.
Myth: interdisciplinary research is inherently ‘good’. Good for whom? The ‘community’, businesses, the researchers themselves? Good for what? Incremental, radical, disruptive, mundane: what kind of innovation?
The Catalyst project invites all scholars of innovation to a half-day research seminar to discuss the value and ‘values’, challenges, lessons learned, failures and successes of interdisciplinary research.
Join our invited speakers Alan Blackwell (Cambridge) and David Tyfield (Lancaster) and get involved in the discussion with our panellists; Jon Whittle (Lancaster), LeanneMorrison (Southampton), Iain Gilchrist (Bristol) , and Alastair Buckley (Sheffield) who represent – four exciting projects funded by the EPRSC-Cross Disciplinary Interfaces Programme (CDIP).
The aim of the seminar is to both bring to the table state-of-the-art academic research in interdisciplinary innovation as well as to investigate what actually happens on the ‘ground’.
