Integration and Implementation Sciences (I2S): Improving research impact on complex real-world problems

I2S logoI2S enhances: 
- knowledge synthesis 
- dealing with diverse unknowns 
- providing integrated research support for policy and practice change 

I2S provides a growing repository of resources drawing from related approaches, including systems thinking, transdisciplinarity, implementation science, action research and more. I2S books and reports present original concepts, methods and applications.

MOOC on Ignorance! ... week 2 is now live

Registration is still open!

The MOOC is based on Michael Smithson's pioneering work on ignorance, with Gabriele Bammer looking specifically at the importance of ignorance to dealing with complex problems.

Find out what ignorance is, where it originates, what people do with it, and its roles in society and culture. Over 5 weeks, we’ll take you on a tour through ignorance in all its varieties and guises. The video provides a brief introduction.




NEW! Postdoctoral position

A postdoctoral position is available to work on “Team Science: Research on Practices in the Transdisciplinary Environmental Sciences”. It will be located at the US National Science Foundation-funded National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) in Annapolis, Maryland, USA. Applications close August 14, 2015 for a 2016 start. The position will work with several SESYNC-funded projects.
