Topic: Interdisciplinary collaboration

Almost all of the significant problems of tomorrow will be systemic problems, which cannot be addressed by any one specialty. These problems require transdisciplinary collaboration that focuses on opportunities for knowledge workers to work in teams, communities, and organizations that encompass multiple ways of knowing and collaborating. Many real-world problems have become too complex to solve for a single expert out of one discipline. The knowledge relevant to solve complex problems is increasingly distributed among many people requiring socio-technical environments that bring together people with different, complementary, and often-controversial points of view to form a community.
