Conference & Events

Theme of the Conference

International Conference on Transdisciplinary & Innovative Research in Science seeks to integrate the insights from multiple disciplines in order to generate a superior understanding of today’s most challenging problems. Transdisciplinary approach is a novelty that will reinvent higher education. Innovative research is an inevitable characteristic to preserve and improve our world’s standard of living. It is only by being innovative that we will address the major areas of unmet need in research development. The horizons of science and technologies becoming increasingly advantageous to the planet to seek out a typical platform. By giving researchers the opportunity to bridge disciplines, new connections are forged and important contributions are made to the world of research innovation and beyond. Researchers are able to combine multiple disciplines and pursue different ways of thinking about the same problem or subject. It’s a revolutionary way of learning that encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration, enables researchers to develop critical thinking skills and presents many “real world” opportunities for growth.

Addressing to the global contexts which require rich collaborations, the conference programme aims to organize three days of innovative and interactive sessions of scientific communities. Each day will starts and ends with plenary talks and panels, creating a community of engaged conference participants. Sessions will consist of roundtable discussions, solution room to questions, workshops, poster presentations and other formats figuring on the programme enabling not only senior scholars but also early career academics as well as students and professionals from outside the academy to contribute.

We invite contributions from attendees in all categories from diverse fields, countries and research or educational cultures, addressing different aspects of the conference theme. The programme supports innovative scientific concepts that will encourage audience involvement and lively discussions. The conference will encompass all avenues of fields of science and technology by throwing light on the positive and inadvertent impact of modern technologies on society.
