Understanding the culture, learning and resourcefulness needed to work in interdisciplinary teams

Welcome to the home of “Developing Interdisciplinary Expertise in Universities” (DP200100376), a Discovery Project located at The University of Sydney, part of Sydney Nano’s Catalysts projects and funded by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council. With this project, we are investigating interdisciplinary cultures, learning, work and resourcefulness and understand the socio-material nature of interdisciplinary learning and interdisciplinary expertise in the context of epistemic cultures.
