Transdisciplinary practice for engineering

Socio-technical research and innovation methods

Understanding how to understand society and social practices in a way that enables better engineering and design practice relies on new approaches. One part of this is around the methods of research – how to combine ideas and methods of knowing from the social sciences with ideas and methods of knowing in engineering?
