Generally, the educational training and research / development process describes the following levels of disciplines interpenetration: pluridisciplinarity, multidisciplinarity, interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity. The interdisciplinarity implies phenomena, general laws and concepts common to several disciplines, analyzed in contexts as varied as possible, to highlight the many facets and possibilities of their application in the area of various disciplines.
