Developing close working relationships between policing and academic organisations requires increased understanding of what is important to each organisation and how to build an effective collaboration.
Embedding police officers in police research organisations has many benefits arising from mutual understanding and trust. Four police officers from the Queensland Police Service in Australia were sequentially seconded to CEPS (Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security) between 2008-2013.
This video describes how a complexity science based toolbox, especially different types of modelling, is used in complex multiple use environments, such as the coastal zones of Australia, to examine different scenarios for sustainable fishing options.
DPMP provides policy advice on responses to illicit drug use, often using models. These include cost-benefit analyses (eg on legalisation of cannabis use), system dynamics models (eg on estimating unmet demand for opioid pharmacotherapy treatment) and agent-based models (eg on policing a street heroin market).
This collection of cases on a range of topics including heart disease, neuroscience, positive health, aging and HIV/AIDS illustrates collaborative research across the social, behavioral, and bio-medical sciences.
This collection of cases illustrates how to draw on disciplinary insights, as well as different approaches to integration. They are based on Repko’s model of the interdisciplinary research process (found in Interdisciplinary Research: Process and Theory, 2008; second edition 2012).
Responding to the persistent problems of unsustainability and other global challenges needs a transformation of the knowledge system as a whole. As this video describes, this includes a transformation in research funding and in education.
Demonstrates modelling scenarios and strategies for sustainable agriculture in an Austrian region. This involved gathering mental models of stakeholders, developing shared understanding of system dynamics, fostering exchange and learning, and developing and assessing strategies.
This case demonstrates the use of participatory research to bring together pastoralists, donors and researchers to build the capacity of the pastoralists to better withstand drought and similar shocks. The case is part of the Pastoral Risk Management (PARIMA) project of the Global Livestock Collaborative Research Support Program (GL-CRSP).
