How do knowledge exchange, science communication, and transdisciplinarity relate to each other? Are there overlaps, or are those fields and concepts distinct from each other? The conference „Transdisziplinarität als institutionelle Herausforderung für Universitäten“, running from 15 to 16 June 2021, offered the perfect environment to address those and similar questions. Our colleagues Konstantin Kiprijanov and Thies Johannsen used the conference as an opportunity to present their poster, and to encourage the academic community to think further about the relationship between knowledge exchange, science communication, and transdisciplinarity from different perspectives.
