The research platform sees the research as a way of life.
The political added value of the research is the societal recognition of the researcher. Transdisciplinarity is perceived as a contact process, a form of contamination, and a way to generate research in the third space of the platform. The clusters connections are linked to civil society, associations and institutions.
The group of the researchers common determines the common aims. The transdisciplnary research process activates the work. It is shared and increases an emotional attention (Citton 2014).
The methods are taught and shared. They are carefully planned, scientific and value-neutral. They include theoretical procedures, experimental studies, numerical schemes, statistical approaches, etc. Research methods help us collect samples, data and find a solution to a problem.
