[en] This paper presents a translation of part of a report written by a CRE colleague in Belgium. It concerns the development of a distinctive method of conducting interdisciplinary research, known as a Competency Group. A Competency Group brings together a range of individuals with differing experiences and knowledge of a particular problem. The Competency Group aims to move thinking about the problem forward through group interaction. This translation outlines four key principles for working in this way: the narrative form; intersections between systems of reference; putting knowledge to the test and mutual learning; and the suspension of strategic interests.
