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 proposed actions for enhancing collaboration between sciences and engineering with practitioners in 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, to 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, institution or region specific issues, 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.

SEAD Working Group on White Papers
The SEAD Working Group on White Papers is assembled in response to the following two objectives from US NSF NEA workshops: a) The NSF NSEAD workshop at MICA suggested the development of White Papers for research and advocacy leading to a common platform (Beyond Productivity 2 report as a follow on to Beyond Productivity, the report issued by the US National Research Council and directed by William Mitchell); present at conferences 2012-13.
For further information or questions about White Papers in text or video format, contact Carol Strohecker <cs@CenterforDesignInnovation.org>.
Additional Guidelines for White Papers are available at http://seadnetwork.wordpress.com/2012/06/11/white-paper-guidelines . We welcome innovative ways of using online media to articulate the arguments of the White Papers.
