HERMES (Transdisciplinary Training of Graduate Students)

Project HERMES looks at how researchers and expert practitioners work together in interdisciplinary (across institutional departments) and transdisciplinary (across stakeholder communities) contexts through the framework of Transdisciplinary Intelligence. The framework includes knowledge and aptitude metrics, good practices, and transdisciplinary training modules to improve collaboration among artists, designers, engineers, scientists, and other experts in order to boost innovation through tool sharing and idea exchange. Project HERMES is currently underway internally at the University of Texas at Dallas among its 100+ research groups and will expand to industry partners in 2020.
