Interdisciplinary Research Projects

Interdisciplinary Research Projects

This searchable database contains details of pump-primed cross-discipline research projects taking place at the University of Aberdeen.

One of the main strands of our Aberdeen 2040 plan is to address urgent and wide-ranging challenges in the interdisciplinary areas of Energy Transition, Social Inclusion and Cultural Diversity, Environment and Biodiversity, Data and Artificial Intelligence, and Health, Nutrition and Wellbeing.

The wide range of projects on display here is a demonstration of some of the early-stage research being funded in these critical areas as well as the University's commitment to addressing the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals, a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all."

Projects undertaken in 2021 were funded by the University of Aberdeen's Scottish Funding Council allocation.

Mass deaths and memorialisation

This project investigates how mass deaths impact on cultural understandings of death as a phenomenon, and on the memorialisation of the dead, with the longer-term aim of developing a network of scholars to support the establishment of a Centre for the study of death at the UoA.

Assessing DNA preservation and biological sex in Pictish Faunal Remains

This project focuses on interdisciplinary ancient DNA research on faunal remains from Pictish archaeological sites and contexts.

Enhancing Collaboration between State, Civil Society and Community in the Face of Crime and Chronic Violence in Mexico

This project aims to support the production of a Guide to Participatory Research for Effective Collaboration in Response to Non-War Violences, aimed at civil society organisations looking to engage with state and communities affected by organised crime. Additionally, the hope is to develop a conceptual tool-kit to help understand and deal with levels of corruption and complicity in criminal business in states across the world.
