Deadline for nominations: January 31st, 2023
Amount of support: 10,000 NOK
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.

We are therefore now accepting nominations for Transdisciplinary Publication of the Year for 2022, with a prize of 10,000 NOK. The money will be transferred to the associated project and can be spent within the frames set by governmental regulations. In the case of a tie, the prize(s) will be shared among multiple winners.

- The research does not have to be affiliated with the Centre for Digital Life
- The first, last, and/or corresponding author should be a researcher based in Norway
- The publication should be published or accepted for scientific publication (e.g., book chapter, peer-reviewed journal article, etc.) during 2022
