TRANSIT Overview

  • 1. TRANSIT University of York Discipline Bridging: The TRANSIT Programme Brief overview 26th October 2007
  • 2. bridging the gaps (BTG) EPSRC Call:  Aims to lower the barriers to interdisciplinary research  Promote interdisciplinary collaboration  Develop novel and creative research  (Focus within an institution)  2nd Call - end July 2007  (Inspired by MRC BTG programme)
  • 3. bid York can demonstrate:  Interdisciplinary Research Centres (YNIC, IIU, CMR, Nano, etc)  Cross-departmental Academic Appointments  YCCSA Cross-campus community Seminar series Bulletin Board Physical centre with co-located cross-disciplinary researchers YCCSA as platform for York BTG bid (model for interdisciplinary interaction)
  • 4. team  Leo Caves (Biology)  Gustav Delius (Maths)  Angelika Sebald (Chemistry)  Susan Stepney (CS)  Jon Timmis (CS/Electronics)  Jamie Wood (Maths/Biology)
  • 5. proposal  strategy: to identify the gaps to interdisciplinary collaboration - based on our experience in developing YCCSA  proposal: A programme of people-based and virtual activities and resources - A process to enhance interdisciplinary collaborative research - TRANSIT - (TRANSition from Interdisciplinarity to Transdisciplinarity)
  • 8. objectives 1. To increase awareness of expertise and initiatives across disciplinary boundaries at UoY by establishing a dedicated day of activities – TRANSITday – to include seminars and visitors supported by a Help Desk (“coming together”) 2. To enhance interactions and the development of novel ideas through the explicit fostering of creativity (“thinking together”) 3. To provide resources to support cross-disciplinary feasibility studies through targeted pump-priming and a scholarship programme (“working together”)
  • 9. elements  people-based activities and resources  virtual platform and resources
  • 10. coming together  seminar and discussion series: A series of seminars/discussions from internal and external (including international) speakers.  visitor programme: A visitor programme to bring distinguished external researchers to UoY. cross-fertilise the research environment establish strategic international collaborations. typically resident for 1-2 weeks
  • 11. thinking together creativity - needs nurturing and explicit support through structured thinking techniques designed to support creativity  adopt Six Thinking Hats and Lateral Thinking Systems of Edward de Bono  training by external consultants available to members of the TRANSIT community small group of staff to receive additional training to create a team of Creative Facilitators
  • 12. working together venture fund:  provides pump-priming resources for feasibility studies.  Equipment e.g. software licenses, specialised hardware or consumables  Personnel e.g. to develop software, evaluate methods  Events e.g. Training/Workshop/Sandpit activities scholarship programme:  take forward cross-disciplinary feasibility studies:  target highly able students from UK, EU and overseas  raises international profile of programme
  • 13. virtual resources (1) TRANSITweb virtual platform:  facilitate announcements of news and events,  host thread-based discussion fora  archive of TRANSIT activities recorded seminars and discussions, venture fund proposals and pitches, technical/summary reports, prototype software and demonstrations, etc promotes the programme across the institution (and public interface)
  • 14. virtual resources (2) TRANSITmap community network - an overview of expertise, resources and collaborative interactions across the UoY members’ research interests, expertise and resources; initiatives, projects, collaborators and useful contacts feedback profiles investigate virtual tokens – TRANSITtokens - to acknowledge and promote collegiality a resource for identifying relevant expertise and resources, promoting interaction and providing feedback
  • 15. delivering TRANSIT (1) TRANSITday  every Friday  seminars/discussions/workshops etc.  focus on TRANSITlunch TRANSITdesk  provide technical / demonstrator support for TRANSITday activities  training for TRANSITmap  respond to scientific / methodological queries
  • 16. delivering TRANSIT (2) Creativity Training  “Users” - 1 day workshop(s)  Facilitators - 2 days workshops Biddable Resources  Bi-annual call  Venture Fund (£8k per call)  Visitor Programme (3 months per year)  (Visiting Scholars) (4 per year / 10 weeks each)  Bids to TRANSITpanel for review and ranking
  • 17. research themes (1) Complexity and Computation in Biological and Material Systems  bio-computation  material informatics and computation
  • 18. research themes (2)  bio-computation understanding the emergent behaviour of biosystems through computer simulation application of biosystem principles to complex computational systems  material informatics & computation substrates for understanding emergent physical properties novel computational substrates and metaphors
  • 19. management & administration  Coordinator Leo Caves  Discipline Champions Angelika Sebald (Chemistry, Susan Stepney (CS), Jon Timmis (CS/Electronics), Jamie Wood (Maths/Biology)  VRE Research and Development Gustav Delius  Administrator TBA  TRANSITpanel drawn from Discipline Champions, TRANSIT members and external experts
  • 20. monitoring TRANSITmap provides resource for representing community network of interactions.  community structure and dynamics hubs, brokers, cliques etc. subgroup activity  strategic planning tool? emergence of themes, critical mass rapid scoping of capability, capacity
  • 21. value  provides over-arching framework for engagement targeted at the development of a cohesive community of cross-disciplinary researchers;  provides training in structured thinking for harnessing the creativity of the community of researchers;  establishes a people-based collaborative research culture to fully exploit and integrate the dedicated physical facilities UoY campus expansion (est. October 2009).
  • 22. vision  develop an interdisciplinary research community with a collaborative ethos  foster creativity and risk-taking; acknowledge collegiality  move towards new transdisciplinary approaches to scientific research and training
