Abstract—Transdisciplinarity is a research strategy that is increasingly employed in a multitude of fields. Communication between the actors is of importance when it comes to ensuring successful collaboration. In order to assess communication processes in a transdisciplinary research alliance, a process screening questionnaire has been developed that can be easily evaluated and thus allows timely feedback to the actors. The process screening questionnaire has been utilized repeatedly on a specific research alliance. This article describes the scientific basis for the development of the process screening questionnaire, exemplifies its application, gives a summary of the results of this specific use, and summarizes benefits and future measures of improvement.
— Transdisciplinarity, evaluation, communication, feedback.
