Societal challenges are complex and require us to reach beyond our traditional research boundaries. DLN supports initiatives that strive to address these challenges through transdisciplinary life sciences. Transdisciplinary research engages a broad range of stakeholders from across academic disciplines (e.g., biology, mathematics, computational sciences, and social sciences) as well as non-academic actors (such as patients, users, industry, and NGOs). For a more in-depth explanation, please look to the White paper: Transdisciplinarity in Digital Life.

Experts must now extend their knowledge, not simply to be an extension of what they know in their specialised field, but to consist of building links and trying to integrate what they know with what others want to, or should, know and do. Bringing together the many different knowledge dimensions involved constitutes specific mixes with other kinds of knowledge, experience and expertise.

- Helga Nowotny (2003)
