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 'International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research and Practices (ICMRP-2022)', which is set to go down on the 22nd & 23rd of November, 2022, in phuket 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.
By the end of the 'International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research and Practices (ICMRP-2022)', participants will have gained numerous benefits and will be able to - define what the complexities of multidisciplinary research exactly are and the challenges and opportunities associated with it in different disciplines;
The 'International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research and Practices (ICMRP-2022)', 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 -
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.
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.
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.
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
