There are theoretical and conceptual aspects to interdisciplinarity, but in previously published work Liz Oughton and I have argued that if we are to address issues of interdisciplinarity fully, we also need to concern ourselves with practice; with the methods by which these concepts are employed. In this chapter I draw on my interdisciplinary research experience to consider some of the challenges of interdisciplinary working with a view to supporting those explicitly researching risk. As outlined above I assume that many aspects of researching risk implicitly require an understanding of interdisciplinary ways of working; combining knowledges and practices from a range of disciplines.
