Henrik Ísterblom , Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden
Dr Ísterblom is team leader for Governance and Ecosystem Management at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. He will describe the development of the Nereus diagram, presenting an overview of the process that led to the conceptualization of the diagram with a focus on how it can contribute to interdisciplinary communication and cooperation. The process involved finding common elements between disciplinary research fields, evaluating how the linkages between the fields can best be evaluated and how qualitative and quantitative data can be combined.
