Explore the innovative methods to interdisciplinary research and data integration used by the Relu research projects, illustrated with case studies.

Interdisciplinarity has been a strategic key priority for Relu. Relu teams all included natural and social scientists, engaged closely with stakeholders, and merged qualitative and quantitative disciplines.

Relu funded 94 research projects and brought together researchers from 40 distinct disciplines from across the social, environmental and biological sciences - from anthropology to water engineering. Projects engaged around 4,000 stakeholders.

This gives a unique opportunity to analyse and reflect on the variety of innovative interdisciplinary methods and approaches to data integration that emerged, with many projects applying a combination of many such approaches.
