Objective of the conference

The utilisation of data to comprehend phenomena and evaluate designs and interventions in different disciplines is increasingly evident. Therefore, engineers and other applied scientists often need to collaborate across multidisciplinary fields when conducting research to stay innovative.

The '2nd International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research and Practices (ICMRP-2023)', which is set to go down on the 20th & 21st September, 2023, in Indonesia. will help participants become a successful multidisciplinary researchers involved either in industry, in a non-profit cause or within academia and be more efficient and successful because they will know where the pitfalls are.

This conference aims to drill into participants the fundamentals of planning and conducting cutting-edge qualitative and quantitative research in the various phases of an innovation or research study.

The conference has been designed by a team of highly experienced multidisciplinary researchers from the disciplines of education, engineering and research methodologies, and will also feature experts in the field of research methodologies as guest lecturers. During the course of the conference, participants will work on creating a project plan for their research, giving them a head start in their research project.

IFERP is a leader in multidisciplinary technological research and innovation projects. By gaining critical know-how from such top experts in the field, participants will learn how to apply best practices in their own context.

  • Theme of the conference

    • Multidisciplinary studies address current and real problems, focusing on solving them - they tend to be applied and action or policy-oriented. The multidisciplinary approach is very popular in developing countries to solve challenges. It represents a progressive scholarly method. The multidisciplinary approach means that the knowledge of several disciplines is used for a given problem and is complementary to each other in such a way that it is possible to draw clear conclusions, without being qualified as isolated or partial.

    • The theme 'Cohesiveness Between Researchers In Multidisciplinary Research Teams - Their Significance, Challenges To Achieve Cohesiveness, & Increased Productivity That They Result In'

    • In multidisciplinary research, several fields are involved in a certain problem- or region-specific line of research. But the individual discoveries of the disciplines concerned are only brought together in a cumulative manner. Consequently, modern research tends to be increasingly multidisciplinary.

    • The reason for this is the growing predominance of problem-oriented and project-oriented applied research. The burgeoning research canon is to apply knowledge from various disciplines to the solution. Of the current problem or at least understand it as a whole for which it is important to understand the multiple facets of the concepts of the challenge. It can be said that multidisciplinary research methodologies have become the need of the hour to solve current problems. Since the current problems are complex in nature requiring knowledge of all its aspects such as economic, social, political, psychological, etc., their solution through research requires multidisciplinary methodologies. An efficacious multidisciplinary process is likely to require certain “softer” human capabilities, such as -

      • leadership,
      • teamwork,
      • altruism,
      • tolerance for difference, and
      • ambiguity.
    • Therefore, a team of people with expertise in various fields can be brought in so that all aspects of a problem can be analysed by a distinct specialist in order to arrive at a suitable and required solution to the challenge. In 'participatory research' and 'intercultural research', a multidisciplinary approach can be applied to find out everything about a particular situation. This can be facilitated by a multidisciplinary team. Researchers within a multidisciplinary research team must possess varying skills and expertise. The different points of view of the team members should complement each other and provide a fuller picture and more in-depth information.

    Scope & Benefits

    The '2nd International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research and Practices (ICMRP-2023)', aspires to offer participants the perfect platform for their multidisciplinary research careers and projects to take off. It intends to do so by highlighting the following -

      Recognizing The Limitations Of All Existing Research Approaches & Compensating For Them

      The key advantage of utilising a mixed methods approach is that concurrent and coordinated design can compensate for the weaknesses of either individual approach. While quantitative research may be inadequate for understanding the context in which a phenomenon occurs, qualitative research alone may invoke subjectivity and fail to produce generalizable results. Consequently, a scientific study of the effects of a certain law on public health requires a multidisciplinary approach.

      The Necessity For Diverse Expertise

      Multidisciplinary research approaches are based on the diversity of expertise, training and skills of partners from various fields. These studies demonstrate how the use of multidisciplinary and/or mixed approaches can be beneficial for projects and research questions related to numerous research scenarios, extending to various fields.

      Proving To Be Contextual

      Multidisciplinary mixed-methods research enhances policy research by providing important contextual information related to policy-related implementation, perceptions, and experiences that may be indirectly associated with a research query. The multidisciplinary teams provided a unique set of skills that enriched each of the components of a study. Researchers involved in these studies have the expertise to develop new measures (indices) and conduct qualitative research, and those from non-technical backgrounds help scientists recognize policy gaps, understand the relationship between national and local policies, and identify participants for qualitative interviews.

      How The Expertise Of SMEs Comes In Handy

      Content experts in related fields provided specialised expertise to refine the research questions, instruments, and analysis. Scientists know the literature relevant to their research, and lawyers have the skills and understanding to find and interpret relevant policies. This combination improved every component of multidisciplinary research studies. The use of multidisciplinary and mixed-methods approaches also helps fill in gaps in each of the components of a complex study and, in some cases, helps more directly assess the potential effect of policies on the research inquiry
