Interdisciplinary research within the life sciences is in demand, and more and more funding bodies requires collaboration among researchers from different disciplines. However, many reserachers find it hard to create truly interdisciplinary project  which can create new areas of knowledge and new opportunities. In this panel conversation, the Sciences Studies Colloquium aims to promote a practical discussion on how to proceed if one wants to create good and truly interdisciplinary projects. We have invited four of the interdisciplinary projects that were selected to be Convergence Environments in the last call to tell about their process.

Akademia og industri er gjensidig avhengig av hverandre for at ideer med utspring i grunnforskning skal tas videre til produkt. Gjennom innovasjonsprogrammet SPARK Norway som er etablert ved UiO, tar vi ut det beste fra begge sider for å bidra til økt verdiskaping innen livsvitenskap. Hvilke gap fyller SPARK-programmet? Og er dette modell som bør spres til hele Norge?
