Safeguardning results


The results and conclusions derived from the projects are highly likely to be relevant, since they have after all been developed from issues and problems in the operations which are concerned. They may therefore, either directly or after a certain amount of modification, contribute towards improving the operations which the project participants are involved in. But if there is no system or structure for capturing the results, there is a risk that they will be overlooked. At the same time, no one knows at the start of a project what sort of results and experiences the joint knowledge production will give rise to.


I. It is very important for those who participate in projects for joint knowledge production to have some kind of backing and prepared structure for how the results and experiences are to be communicated in their own operations during the entire duration of the project.

II. Verbal updates are preferable to written reports.

III. Work out a plan for regular meetings with those affected in the regular workplaces, where the project participant talks about what is happening in the transdisciplinary project and their colleagues have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss.

  • "How can we benefit from this?"
  • "How does this affect us?"

Think about!

In a joint knowledge production, the result will be measured and used differently depending on where it is used. In the world of research, progress is most often measured simply by the number of articles that are produced. In other fields of activity, the amount of text produced is hardly given any attention.
