Research Ideas

Research ideas are submitted by local authorities and other participants seeking transdisciplinary research expertise.

Research ideas do not need to be in a finalised form to be submitted to ECOBROKER. 

ECOBROKER works best where an initial idea or knowledge gap is proposed and the ECOBROKER collaborative process serves as a kind of ‘research formulation phase’, where practitioners and researchers can collaboratively formulate questions more precisely.

The outcome of this process could be a research proposal or the formulation of a research tender.
