Project description

The aim of my project is to develop a tool for supporting interdisciplinary research. The tool consists of two modules: a language module which enables the disambiguation of concepts which are central to the interdisciplinary research, and a methodology module which allows to explicate (potentially conflicting) assumptions on ‘causation’ and ‘explanation’ held by the interdisciplinary research team members.
