The SHAPE-ID Toolkit

The SHAPE-ID toolkit was developed by the SHAPE-ID project, a Coordination and Support Action funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme and led by the Trinity Long Room Hub.

The aim of the project was to review understandings and best practice of doing and supporting interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research (IDR/TDR) involving Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) disciplines alongside societal partners and researchers from the Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

This toolkit aims to provide guidance for policymakers, funders, research-performing organisations, researchers and research partners to help make better decisions and promote change in policymaking, funding and educational institutions. 

Using the toolkit 

The toolkit is a collection of resources organised around goals users might want to achieve, such as understanding IDR/TDR, funding collaborative research, evaluating IDR/TDR or developing IDR/TDR research skills.

Some resources come from specific disciplines or organisations but we have selected them because they have valuable messages for a more general audience and we provide context and introductions to guide their use where necessary.
