Collaboration across disciplines is key to addressing today's global challenges. This collaboration is facilitated by multidisciplinary research, however, the degree to which multidisciplinary researchers are collaborating in projects is slowly but steadily coming to a decline. The 3rd International Conference on Advancing Knowledge from Multidisciplinary Perspectives in Engineering & Technology (ICAKMPET-2022), which will transpire on the 23rd & 24th of December, 2022, in Turkey.
Professionals from around the world are recognizing that the changes and challenges confronting us require researchers to collaborate more effectively. Research bodies have created a flexible framework of multidisciplinary networks, centres and institutes to facilitate interdisciplinary work. These institutes, centres and networks transcend faculty boundaries to enable the effective advancement of scientific endeavour. Globally, research institutes are addressing some of the most significant issues facing the world today. These institutes are outward looking and work with policy makers and businesses to apply new knowledge and provide independent scientific advice.
It is upto multidisciplinary research policymakers to ensure that global multidisciplinary research benefits from an environment in which it can flourish. Multidisciplinary research is actively encouraged and promoted throughout the world (both in developing and developed nations). This is for the most part due to the recognition that a multidisciplinary approach is needed to solve many of the challenges we currently face. There are countless examples of how bringing together multiple disciplines has produced breakthrough solutions that would almost certainly not have been found by focusing on just one area.
For all the professionals who ever need or want to reaffirm their belief in the virtues of a multidisciplinary approach, taking part in the 3rd ICAKMPET-2022 will help provide this all-essential affirmation.
In order to address this scenario, the theme of the 3rd ICAKMPET-2022 has been identified as 'Encourage and promote sensible knowledge in the field of Engineering & Technology'.
Currently, multidisciplinary research has become the most viable and efficient way to solve the problem. In this era of rapidly changing society, many kinds of socio-economic problems, related to other disciplines such as politics, anthropology, psychology, have arisen which require a holistic approach to find their solution.
When we speak of a multidisciplinary, transdisciplinary or interdisciplinary research team, we imply collaboration between people from different disciplines. Thus, the concept of a multidisciplinary research team can be considered as a subset of the concept of collaborative research.
By emphasising on collaborative multidisciplinary research, the 03rd ICAKMPET-2022, will offer the following benefits to participants -
Collaboration is even more intriguing when the knowledge is implied and isn’t already published.
Collaboration leads to a mixing of ideas and a confrontation of points of view which should in turn stimulate creativity.
Researchers increase their respective network of contacts in the scientific community through collaboration.
This will be made possible through dissemination actions on both sides of each employee.
