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.
