The view that ICTs-and-Society is a transdiscipline offers great potential as a way forward. As the community
moves toward a shared understanding of what constitutes transdisciplinary engagement a series of new questions are
raised. This paper reflects on one of them – the question of how transdisciplinarity can be accomplished in the university.
The argument advanced is that by re-framing the challenges of accommodating transdisciplinarity as an opportunity for
institutional innovation there is potential to increase the support for research on ICTs-and-Society in the university, and to
provide university administrators with a way to demonstrate leadership by adopting a broader innovation agenda that could
re-invigorate the university and strengthen its relationship with the broader community in which it is situated.
