  1. 1. inter/multidisciplinarity versus high specialisation Dipl.-Ing. Maria BOSTENARU DAN Universität Karlsruhe (TH), Germany
  2. 2. • Mobility experience • Multi/inter/transdisciplinarity • Graduiertenkolleg • European School for Advanced Studies • The success story • Fazit
  3. 3. • a first grant during the architecture and urbanism studies at the architecture Institute “Ion Mincu” in Romania, to fullfill the mobility schedule of the JEP-9688/95 in the frame of the TEMPUS programme for the academic year 1995-96 (7 months) at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Karlsruhe (TH), Germany • a Marie Curie Host Fellowship of the European Commission, within the frame IHP (Improving Human Potential), Grant Category B20, contract number HPMT-CT-2001-00359, for a research training project as integral part of the doctoral studies at the University of Karlsruhe for a stay at the European School for Advanced Studies in Reduction of Seismic Risk at the University of Pavia, Italy
  4. 4. multidisciplinary approach = a programmed approach from the point of view of more disciplines. The study object is regarded separately by each discipline and so each discipline draws out its own conclusions. Finally the conclusion is compiled by the leader of the research group. object discipline A discipline B discipline C conclusion A conclusion B conclusion C compiled conclusion
  5. 5. interdisciplinary approach = an approach where the researchers looking to the study object have been trained about the way of approach and the vocabulary of the disciplines with which they collaborate. The programme exists thus before the approach to the problem. The result is an unique conclusion, where the components originating from a discipline or another cannot be distinguished anymore. object discipline A discipline B discipline C one conclusion
  6. 6. transdisciplinary approach (not recommended) = an approach where the on in researcher has got habits from different fields (through supperposition through PhD or advanced studies of different formations or through formation in schools with transdisciplinary specific) object one conclusion
  7. 7. „Naturkatastrophen“ = Nature‘s Disasters understanding and modelling of hazards hazards management and measures for damage reduction economic and social aspects of natural hazards •individual programme •collective programme > excursions, conferences, workshops
  8. 8. Reduction Of SEismic risk • International experts, which stay a short period (4-6 weeks at the school) • International co-operation agreements including student exchange • Topics of study: fundamental fields of deepening comprise aspects of seismology, geology, geotechnics, behaviour of materials and structures, structural analysis, design of new structures and upgrading of existing structures.
  9. 9. In frame of „Graduiertenkolleg“ 2001 first participation to the European Geophysical Assembly 2002 chairperson 2003 co-convener EGS-AGU-EUG 2004 convener European Geosciences Union for the session Natural Hazards Impact on Urban Areas and Infrastructure 2002-2003 mobility stay at ROSE 2003 activity in the MCFA 2004 contacts through the MCFA solicited speakers for the session Natural Hazards Impact on Urban Areas and Infrastructure from field of geophysics
  10. 10. • basic education in architecture, specialisation urbanism • early stage research training (doctorate) in construction management (common field architecture-civil engineering) • mobility research training in pure civil engineering (structural-earthquake engineering) • emerging co-operation in multidisciplinary view of seismic risk for urban areas
