Interdisciplinary research is a mode of research by teams/individuals that integrates information, data, tools & techniques, perspectives, concepts, and/or theories from two or more disciplines or bodies of specialized knowledge to advance fundamental understanding or to solve problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline/area of research practice. Interdisciplinary research can be one of the most productive and inspiring of human pursuits- one that provides a format for conversations and connections that lead to new knowledge.
