In November 2021, Varvara Nikulina was a guest lecturer at the University of Graz, online. She gave two participatory classes to the students in the course Inter- and Transdisciplinary problem solving, lead by Dr. Ralf Aschemann.
The overarching theme was Tools, Methods and Approaches for inter- and transdisciplinary problem solving.
The first lecture was focusing on why collaboration between the stakeholders is important; key approaches in relation to disciplines to problem solving as well as categorisation of the challenges we might face; and, finally, who needs to be involved in problem solving.
The second lecture was focusing on what needs to be done, when and what needs to be considered in the process.
Additionally, an example of using transdisciplinary approach to integration of multilevel goals in the context of sustainable transport planning in Blekinge, Sweden was presented.
This collaboration will continue if there will be suitable circumstances.
