FINTERDIS – The Finnish Interdisciplinary Society is an academic organization founded on October 4, 2018, which supports inter- and transdisciplinary research and teaching in Finland as well as internationally. FINTERDIS aims to support especially students and early-career researchers (below Title of Docent level) in their efforts to integrate approaches and ideas across fields, while collaborating with more advanced scholars with inter- and transdisciplinary interests. The goal of FINTERDIS is that early-career researchers and students would have better and more equal opportunities for independent creative thought and a right to cross boundaries even on radical basis.
FINTERDIS is a registered, autonomous society, whose sphere of activities encompasses the whole country of Finland. We make effort to collaborate with as many Finnish higher education institutions as possible. FINTERDIS also introduces different practices related to inter- and transdisciplinarity from different countries to the Finnish context and vice versa and promotes the internationalization of Finnish scholars. Our main international collaborators include the U.S.-based Association for Interdisciplinary Studies (AIS), the Early-Career Scholars Working Group of the new global Inter- and Transdisciplinary (ITD) Alliance, and the Latin American NODO ESIT – Nodo de Estudios sobre Interdisciplina y Transdisciplina. We are also open to and constantly seeking opportunities for new collaborations!
FINTERDIS is open to all students, researchers and teachers affiliated with Finnish universities regardless of career stage or specialization. Please join us in the activities of FINTERDIS!
