In 2012, The Interacting Minds Centre was established at Aarhus University as part of a strategic initiative to foster interdisciplinary and cross-faculty collaborations. The first five years are coming to an end, it has been a wonderful, inquisitive, and fun journey; and it is set for continuation; the Faculty of Arts has decided to support the Centre 2017-19 with a generous core grant. This event also marks 10 years of collaboration with Chris and Uta Frith. Since 2007 they have been visiting professors at Aarhus University, closely following and nurturing a whole generation of researchers.

The Interacting Minds Centre (IMC) provides a transdisciplinary platform to study human interaction. It involves researchers from the humanities, social sciences, cognitive sciences, biology and clinical research. This is necessary, because through interactions, humans construct worlds that are at once physical, economic, symbolic and normative.

The Symposium "Interacting Minds in Collaboration" is held 28-30 September 2016 and is dedicated to the three themes: cognition, communication, and choice
