TWR Network


The second Transdisciplinary Workplace Research conference will be held from the 16th -19th of September 2020 in Weimar, Germany, in cooperation with Bauhaus-Universität Weimar as our local university partner. In case of continuing Covid-19 measures, the conference will continue in a virtual environment.

During the TWR2020 conference days you will alternate between plenary and parallel sessions filled with presentations on the latest workplace related studies, from scientists and/or practitioners with diverse disciplinary backgrounds. Additionally, there will be ‘unconference’ sessions to get to know other researchers and interact, such as transdisciplinary speed-working-events, joint brainstorms and of course regular networking breaks.

The TWR network  warmly invites both academic and professional researchers to join us in Weimar for TWR 2020. Approximately 70 workplace studies will be presented during 2 days of different plenary and parallel sessions. The abstracts accepted for presentations in the parallel sessions will be accompanyied by short papers (approximately 3000 words, excluding abstract and references). The short papers have been reviewed by our scientific committee and will be published in proceedings made available at the conference and open source online on this website.

Important dates:

International and national flights arrive through Frankfurt main airport (see for connections).
