Driving Solutions-Inspired Research
Become a global leader and catalyst for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research and training that advance solutions to the 21st century’s biggest challenges.
The most pressing environmental and societal challenges of the 21st century lie at the nexus of multiple disciplines within academia, and between traditional scholars and actors beyond the academy. Finding solutions to these problems requires IBES to innovate in the types of research that we do, the way we define its impact, and the partnerships that we cultivate in its design and execution. Since its inception, IBES has built a strong culture of cross-disciplinary research. We will build on that foundation to partner with communities, stakeholders and sectors historically excluded from academic research to expand the breadth of perspectives, tools, networks and approaches that we leverage in our research.
