What is this project about?

A brave team of interdisciplinary scholars combine their expertise to address the contemporary challenge of collaborations between the practitioners and researchers who too often study independently from each other. The team plans to develop a gamified ‘process black box’ prototype to systematize and translate their understanding of collaborative research processes into an accessible approach that other researchers can benefit from. The team aims to involve participants from adjacent projects in workshops to test and co-create different prototype versions. The project’s creative spark is the idea that diverse metaphors can help collaborative research participants design, monitor, and conduct their research initiatives. The team will seek to offer alternatives so groups can discuss their collaborative research journeys, process phases, or project milestones.

Research team:

Federico Andreotti (WUR), Merijn Bruijnes (UU), Jonas Colen Ladeia Torrens (UU), Dan Lockton (TU/e), Jillian Student (WUR)
