Transdisciplinary Research Academy


The Transdisciplinary Research Academy (TTUTRA) is designed to bring people with diverse interests together to explore questions that have a global impact and intersect with the strategic research themes established by the university.

Achieving external funding is not the sole outcome of Academy projects. Academy members also are encouraged to develop white papers and grant proposals for agencies and foundations promoting potential solutions to global issues. Academy members may develop programs curricula to stimulate interactions across disciplines, as well.
