[Executive summary]

This is the final version (#3) of the MAZI deliverables that propose self-reflections as a way of dealing with collective work in interdisciplinary action and research projects. Its goal is to provide a meta-perspective of the self-reflection outcome documented in detail in previous deliverables. More specifically, this document overviews the process as carried out in MAZI, and based on this experience It develops three categories of action toward shaping common spaces for inter- and transdisciplinary research. These are namely

a) communities of practice around DIY networking technology (Section 2);

b) transdisciplinary co-design of the MAZI toolkit across-localities (Section 3); and

c) learning, appropriation of knowledge, sustainability and knowledge transfer (Section 4).

It concludes with a few important lessons learned for the design of future projects, namely the positive impact of assigning overlapping leading roles to partners in interdisciplinary research, and the need for carefully designed intimate spaces for self reflection.
