Research shall contribute to transformations towards sustainable development. How does such research look like and what is needed to promote this kind of research? Will transformative research become the new normal or is it just a short-lived new fashion?

With presentations of examples of innovative transformative research partnerships and expectations from policy workers and practitioners we learn more about the potential but also challenges of transformative research.
