Convergent Approach

We believe that deep understanding of sociotechnological system transitions requires transdisciplinary, convergent approaches. The MICARES team is transdisciplinary, including social, humanities, engineering, and computational scholars as well as members from industry, Tribal Nation, governmental, and nongovernmental sectors. Our approach is convergent in that we are working to develop a deeply integrative conceptual framework, methods, and research designs for transition study that draw from a diverse set of sectors and scholarly disciplines.
