About the Interdisciplinary Laboratory: Complex problems cannot be solved within the boundaries of a single academic discipline. They require the knowledge and skills of researchers from different fields of knowledge: representatives from more than 40 different disciplines have been researching fundamental design processes in the sciences in the Interdisciplinary Laboratory Image Knowledge Gestaltung at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin since 2012. The Interdisciplinary Laboratory brings together the humanities, the natural sciences and engineering sciences, medicine and – for the first time in basic research – design and architecture, with the objective to strengthen and enrich each discipline through interdisciplinary collaboration.
