Interdisciplinary bubble projects
By Susanne Clement Justesen, SSH Dean’s secretariat
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities wishes to create new synergies at the faculty, stimulate emerging collaborations between SSH and external stakeholders, address societal challenges, and contribute to research funding. Therefore, the faculty management team chose to provide support for several start-up projects.
The project was named "bubble projects" because the projects were to be based on new interdisciplinary ideas involving researchers from at least two SSH departments. Also, the projects could focus on both basic and applied research. 20 project applications were submitted, of which 11 were selected.

According to vice-dean for external collaboration Anette Therkelsen, it is also positive that the research ideas are based on external collaboration networks; this ensures that the initiatives are relevant to society and at the same time closely connected to international research.
In the first quarter of 2023, we will compile a summary of all activities in the bubble projects.
The 11 bubble projects were selected by an assessment group whose members are vice-dean for research Søren Kristiansen, vice-dean for external relations Annette Therkelsen, professor Dorte Caswell, Department of Sociology and Social Work, Professor Jacob Brix, Aalborg University Business School and Professor Pirkko Liisa Raudaskoski, Department of Communication and Psychology.
