What  is Transdisciplinary Research?

In the fast-moving space of developments in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), transdisciplinary research is emerging as the beacon of new approaches, the cornerstone of innovation, laying the path towards newer groundbreaking discoveries. The significance of transdisciplinary research lies in its ability to address the intricate challenges that face our society today. These challenges often defy the constraints of single disciplines, demanding an integrated approach that draws upon the expertise of various fields. By bridging the gaps between disciplines, transdisciplinary research enables researchers to identify patterns, connections, and insights that would otherwise remain hidden. Transdisciplinary research is not merely an academic pursuit; it is a driving force behind societal progress today. It has played a pivotal role in advancements in fields such as medicine, environmental science, and sustainable development.
