Abstract

Eric Sarmiento and Mohammad Mortazavi-Naeini, both postdoctoral researchers in the MaRIUS project, bring fresh perspectives on transdisciplinary research. In addition to reflecting on their own roles in the Kennet ECG and what they learned from it they also present some critical views. Eric questions the social inequalities that remain even when the playing field for differently constituted knowledge has been levelled. Mohammad voices a concern about the risk of the local focus becoming too narrow, excluding the systemic character of water resources.
