Interdisciplinary research is needed to address social issues more broadly, but this way of collaborating and doing research does not happen automatically.

Such research requires a specific set of competences that researchers are not trained for, and it requires a change in institutional set-up and culture (e.g. Recognise and Appreciate) to facilitate Interdisciplinary research. Is your interest piqued? And you want to know more about it? Centre of Unusual Collaborations (CUco) invites you to watch the documentary and join the conversation about the recognition and appreciation of interdisciplinary research and collaboration.
