Clients for the projects were government, corporations and non-government organizations. The repository […]
Overview of several high profile system dynamics model-based applications, selected to show what such models look like, how they emerged (often in multidisciplinary interventions), and how they were used successfully to influence strategy, policy, and decision making. Examples include project management, commodity cycles, urban dynamics, and infectious disease policy. Video (30 minutes): Models that Matter: […]

This video describes how transdisciplinary research contributes to sustainability through a case study of five projects in Gothenburg, Sweden. It assesses a common assumption that transdisciplinary research is more able to contribute to societal problem solving than traditional forms of research. This assumption is based on the analytical belief that collaboration between and among social […]
“Health social science synthesizes a wide range of knowledge in order to understand and solve complex health problems. This volume presents ten case studies that illustrate some of the best practice in health social science in developing countries. Each study addresses the critical question of how social and behavioral science approaches can make a difference […]
