In the conclusion, Catharina Landström first considers some topics brought up in the specific conversations: the personal interest in philosophy and local controversy mentioned by the Professors; the Post docs’ concerns about social exclusion and the limitations of the local; and the Mixed Encounter’s observation that the duration of the group was crucial. Then, we examine some themes appearing across all conversations, for example, that everybody appreciated the open-endedness of the process and understood the importance of social science being in the lead. Also, everybody found the Kennet ECG a positive experience and would like to take part in similar transdisciplinary projects again. Finishing by looking forward Landström contemplates the potential for transdisciplinary knowledge production in local river management.
