Research domain: Competencies for Transformation

The Athena Institute develops, evaluates and embeds methodologies, tools and spaces to train students, professionals and researchers in transdisciplinary approaches. This will support them in facilitating and participating in successful multi-stakeholder processes to address complex societal problems. Find our projects listed below, divided into subthemes.

Universities of the future

Academia needs to keep up with societal developments. Increasingly heated public debates urge universities to rethink their role in society. They are expected to creatively include the knowledge and experiences of citizens, professionals and policy makers in scientific research and education. But how to do that? Athena develops innovative methods to engage societal actors in a playful and inclusive way.
