SHAPE-ID Learning Case Workshops Intermediate Working Paper

  • 2. The Institute of Literary Research, Polish Academy of Sciences
  • 3. ETH Zurich


The SHAPE-ID project was scheduled to organise six learning case workshops across Europe between December 2019 and May 2020 to enable stakeholders to explore best practices in interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research (IDR/TDR). A report on the workshop series was scheduled for June 2020. The first three of these workshops – held in Dublin in December 2019, Edinburgh in January 2020 and Turin in February 2020 – took place as planned but the remaining three – intended to take place in Bilbao in March, in Warsaw in April and in Zurich in May 2020 – were postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. These workshops will now take place in a virtual format in September and October 2020 and the report on the results of all six workshops has been necessarily postponed to the end of November 2020. This working paper has been prepared to share in a preliminary form the results of the first three workshops.

We emphasise the provisional nature of this report as the workshop series is ongoing. The outcomes of all six workshops will be synthesised and evaluated when the series is complete.


We would like to thank all of the participants of our workshops in Dublin, Edinburgh and Turin, who gave their time so generously to contribute the insights included in this report.
