The Incubator for Transdisciplinary Futures was created to catalyze and support bold collaborations that will foster the future of scholarly inquiry.
Our mission is to nurture innovative academic configurations that may endure—and even become research and educational models to follow—thus transforming not only Arts & Sciences but also Washington University.
We believe transdisciplinary research and learning can help us envision better futures. The projects we support:
- Transcend the boundaries that disciplines imply—mixing and merging to lead to something new
- Are deeply linked to questions and problems that connect the academy and society
- Encourage novel thinking about future directions within traditional disciplines as well as across them
