liebe equals,
hier eine Information zum Thema, wie man inter- und 
transdisziplinaere Forschungsproggramme "organisieren lernt" - im 
weitesten Sinne.
Have a nice week

>Subject: SARMA Info-Lunch on 23 October 2002 at WSL
>Date: Sat, 7 Sep 2002 09:46:28 +0200
>X-Priority: 3
>Dear friends of SARMA
>The WSL and SARMA have the pleasure to invite you to attend the
>SARMA Info-Lunch at the WSL
>Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research
>Wednesday, 23 October 2002
>11:00 - 14:00
>"Practical possibilities and limitations of inter- and transdisciplinary
>research programs"
>Experiences of the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape
>Research, Birmensdorf, Zurich
>Our professional training, the organization of research institutions, as
>well as our thinking are strongly influenced by disciplines. However, the
>everyday life and its problems do not stop at discipline boundaries. This
>fact entails that only inter- and transdiciplinary approaches can lead to
>effective solutions of problems.
>Since 4 years WSL manages its interdisciplinary research projects by so
>called WSL-Programs, thus taking advantage of in house synergies. These
>programs take up complex questions, which can only be solved by the
>interaction of several disciplines. The program schemes are organized in a
>matrix structure. However, this very simple structure bears many problems
>with regard to its practical implementation.
>During this SARMA Info-Lunch, the WSL-Program managers would like to share
>their experience with SARMA members and discuss questions such as:
>- How to motivate researchers to participate in one of these programs with
>little or no money?
>- How to manage a program with limited financial incentives?
>- What are the possibilities for program controlling?
