The chapter presents the methodological approach that is general to all case studies presented in the book. First of all, the conceptual background and the guiding principles such as inter- and transdisciplinarity, stake-holder involvement and exchange and learning, are presented and discussed. In the next section, a common understanding of research as a process is elaborated and a phasing concept is presented and operationalised. Finally, conclusions on the expected outcomes both for the scientific communities as well as for political and practice stakeholders are drawn and discussed.
