GEI Academy offers interdisciplinary research and theory
In contemporary times, it is clear that areas of research are dynamic — continually emerging, transforming or even converging.
GEI Academy offers a comprehensive and systematic presentation of the interdisciplinary research process and the theory that informs it.
According to the definition set forth in a National Academies’ report:
“Interdisciplinary research is a mode of research by teams or individual that integrates information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts, and/or theories from two or more disciplines or bodies of specialized knowledge to advance fundamental understanding or to solve problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline or area of research practice.”
