Interdisciplinary cooperation for environmental policy design: experiences from the SHARP program
2005 (English)Report (Other academic)
The increased demand for cross-disciplinary and policy-relevant research programs that pro-mote sustainable development raises a number of important questions about the desirability of such research endeavors as well as about how these demands could be integrated into the programs. This paper discusses these issues based on experiences gained from the ongoing research program "Sustainable Households: Attitudes, Resources and Policy" (SHARP). The focus is first on how multi- and cross-disciplinary integration has been built into the program, and what types of problems have been encountered during this process. We then discuss how the program has attempted to meet the demand for policy-relevant research without compromising on scientific quality standards, and how this demand has affected the nature of the cross-disciplinary cooperation.
