Glossary Definition: 

A research method in which scientists from different disciplines work with stakeholders and practitioners to co-define problems, and then develop a common language to discuss them. Participatory transdisciplinary research is when stakeholders are involved throughout the research process to find an acceptable solution. Consultative transdisciplinary research is when stakeholders propel research by co-defining problems and research questions with scholars to ensure such research will be relevant beyond the scientific community.
