Final programme for Interdisciplinarity in DigiTech Research Spring School (24-26 April 2024, Prague)

Updated: Apr 18



As we are counting down the days until 24th April 2024, the first day of our upcoming spring school in Prague, we are excited to share the full schedule for the event.


A diverse team of speakers and workshop hosts with expertise in psychology, sociology, art and anthropology will offer a 2 ½-day programme of interactive activities, engaging talks and inspiring workshops aimed at early career researchers interested in DigiTech Research. Participants will be introduced to the foundations of interdisciplinary research and creative and varied approaches to its implementation, which will equip them with the skills and knowledge to reimagine their own studies from an interdisciplinary perspective.


Highlights of each day


  • Wednesday, 24th April: On the first day you will be introduced to the concept of interdisciplinarity, the barriers and facilitators of its implementation and its importance for solving wicked problems. We will involve you in interactive exercises and invite you to listen to a keynote on the topic.

  • Thursday 25th April: The second day will begin with the discussion and presentation of three essential challenges of interdisciplinary research: Applications for funding, engagement of stakeholders and implementation of research that will create impact. This will be followed by lectures and discussions about art-based approaches to research designed to help you step out of your comfort zone and consider more radical ways to embrace interdisciplinarity. At the end of the day, we will invite you to join a panel discussion to hear from researchers at various stages of their career about how to make it in academia.

  • Friday 26th April: On the last day of our event, we will offer four workshops focusing on specific methodological approaches and topics ranging from the ethics of digital and social media research to arts and illustration, the role of vulnerable groups in research and ethnographic methods. Participants will be able to choose and attend two workshops.
