A shared vision faces the challenge of incorporating and reconciling the very diverse interests and ideas of the project partners. This requires critical reflection along the cooperative process beyond the initial definition of the shared vision.
One of the fundamental challenges at the beginning of any cooperation, which determines the further success of a project, is the definition of a common vision. Closely linked to this is the question of the extent to which this vision covers the different interests of the participants. Especially in transdisciplinary collaborations between scientists and actors from society, the ideas of the project's goal often diverge and thus emerging differences regarding vision and orientation represent a major transfer barrier in this context (Kurzhals et al., 2021, in reference to Firmansyah, 2017 and Unertl et al., 2015).
