Dataset Open Access
The metadata of interdisciplinary (IDR) and transdisciplinary (TDR) projects conducted under the European Union framework programs (FP7 & Horizon 2020) were collected from the Cordis database (https://cordis.europa.eu/). SHAPE-ID research team used periodic data dumps, stored in EU open data portal (https://data.europa.eu/euodp/en/data/dataset/cordisfp7projects and https://data.europa.eu/euodp/en/data/dataset/cordisH2020projects).
The data dump from May 2019 was used, so the FP7 database is complete while H2020 projects were still being added periodically.
CORDIS files were subsequently queried for interdisciplinar* or transdicsiplinar*, matched against title or abstract (“objective”). This procedure allowed for creating two subsets:
FP7_projects_May2019_IDR_TDR.csv 1750 FP7 projects. Out of 1699 IDR projects, interdisciplinar* featured in 40 titles and 1679 abstracts. Out of 56 TDR projects transdisciplinar* featured in 2 project titles and 54 abstracts.
1912 H2020 projects (as of May 2019). Out of 1837 IDR projects, interdisciplinar* featured in 57 titles and 1820 abstracts. Out of 85 TDR projects transdisciplinar* featured in 2 project titles and 85 abstracts.
Description of the files
CSV files contain the same fields as CORDIS database data dumps: id, acronym, status, programme, topics, framework Programme, title, startDate, endDate, projectUrl, objective, totalCost, ecMaxContribution, call, fundingScheme, coordinator, coordinatorCountry, participants, participantCountries, subjects.
IDR - project features interdiciplinary research (1 = yes, 0 = no)
TDR - project features transdiciplinary research (1 = yes, 0 = no)
Title_Interdisciplinar* - frequency of “interdisciplinar*” in the project title
Objective_interdisciplinar*- frequency of “interdisciplinar*” in the project objective
Title_transdisciplinar* - frequency of “interdisciplinar*” in the project title
Obj_transdisiplinar* - frequency of “interdisciplinar*” in the project objective
