In research, our Institute will endeavour to develop further and apply the concept of transdisciplinarity. Scientists and professionals contribute their unique expertise, engage at the boundaries of their specific disciplineswith the declared aim of understanding the complexities of the whole project rather than providing a multifaceted understanding of only one part of it. In this complex, interesting and challenging work, that implies team work, often international, new intellectual spaces of knowledge are created, sometimes with the help of new methodologies and approaches.
