The Added Value of Collaborating Across Boundaries
Intensive collaboration between different disciplines is often not without obstacles—healthcare and creative professionals come from different worlds that are not automatically aligned. This study investigates the research question: how do project partners in Create-Health innovation collaborate across boundaries, and how does it add value to interdisciplinary collaboration? It addresses the close collaborations between researchers and practice partners from creative industry and healthcare sector within ten research projects on eHealth innovation. It describes the way that Create-Health collaboration took shape across disciplinary boundaries and provides examples of boundary crossing from the ten projects, with the objective of stimulating learning in the creative and health sectors on creative ways of working on interdisciplinary projects. Findings focus on the way partners from various backgrounds work together across disciplinary boundaries and on the benefits that such collaborations bring for a project.
