Presenter: Professor Lawrence Cram

There are people charged with responsibilities to address important problems of society. Sometimes these people are aware of the valuable contributions that academic research could make to their task, but find it difficult to mobilise the resource. Academic research is organised in disciplines, and it is never an easy undertaking to apply a cluster of disciplines to address an important problem.

This seminar will discuss some of the characteristics of different disciplines that inhibit mobilisation, and open a discussion about ways to integrate knowledge in support of successful implementation of change.
