SEAD Network for Sciences, Engineering, Arts and Design announces a
call for White Papers on issues facing the international community
seeking to enhance transdisciplinary collaboration

We are seeking to survey concerns, roadblocks and opportunities, and
solicit recommended actionsfor enhancing collaboration among sciences,
engineering, arts and design. These position papers will be submitted
as part of a report to NSF and the community from the SEAD network in
the summer of 2013. With grateful appreciation for US funding, we
recognize that activity connecting the sciences, engineering, arts,
and design is international and, furthermore, that global involvements
are essential in today’s economy. Therefore we are interested both in
what US collaborators can learn from experiences in other countries,
and vice versa, and also in how to foster collaborations that bridge
beyond regions to nations. Cultural cross-fertilization via the SEAD
network – whether from disciplinary, organizational or ethnic
perspectives – is a vital component of our purpose and goals.
