Edinburgh Napier University is delighted to be hosting the TWR Conference, from 4-7 September 2024, at our beautifully located Craiglockhart Campus in Edinburgh, Scotland. All academics, researchers, students and professionals interested in workplace matters are welcome.

The Transdisciplinary Workplace Research (TWR) network is an eclectic group of scholars and practitioners who share one goal: to contribute to the design and management of workplaces where people work to their full potential and experience high levels of mental and physical wellbeing. Social, physical, technological and management issues merge to make this field of research truly transdisciplinary.

There will be a mix of keynotes, short paper presentations, abstract-only presentations and research posters as well as a conference dinner. Approximately 150 delegates from around the world are expected to attend, including a mix of academic staff and practitioners, students and researchers. This conference aims to bring together work environment experts in all relevant disciplines, both from academia and practice.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Physical work environment (e.g., architecture
    and design, building physics, bio-technology,
    material science)
  • Social work environment (e.g. human
    resources management, behavioural sciences,
    organisational science, business, health
    & safety, neuroscience, environmental
    psychology, philosophy)
  • Digital work environment (e.g. information
    communication technology, virtual reality,
    sensor engineering, data analytics)
  • Management of the built environment (e.g.
    asset, facility and property management,
    economics, corporate real estate management,
    decision science).
