One of the points made often in relation to improving science, technology and innovation policy is the need for more effective multidisciplinary research. The ESRI is organising a Training Workshop focused on understanding multidisciplinary research collaboration and learning how to make it more effective. The Workshop will take place on 3 November 2009, 9:00-13:00. More details can be found here. Places are limited to 30 participants including researchers and policy analysts. Registration before 25 October 2009 here.

IIASA appear to do good stuff on interdisciplinary approaches to global problems. I strongly recommend their podcasts.
Looks interesting, I wish I was bright enough to be an academic!
Out of interest, have you ever read a book by Howard Rheingold, Smart Mobs?
