According to Weingart, interdisciplinarity is seen by academics and public policy makers as a response to super-specialization of science. However, very little has been done in terms of changes in the organization of universities or in the actual behavior of professors and researchers.

“But now there are signs that this may change,” he says, noting that universities have launched pioneering initiatives to transform their organizational structure to “facilitate and encourage intellectual exchange and cooperation across disciplinary boundaries.”
