This paper presents and compares different approaches of science–practice collaboration, in particular action research, (Mode 2) Transdisciplinarity (Td), Transition Management (TM), and Transformative Science (TSc). We elaborate on the different roles that scientists in these processes play. In Td processes they work as facilitators to develop socially robust solutions, as activist researchers in TM projects, and as catalysts in TSc. In Td processes science is viewed as a public good aiming to serve all key stakeholders. Researchers involved in TM projects strive to influence ongoing transition processes. The TSc approach takes a catalyst perspective when inducing processes of strategic (societal) transition when including certain stakeholder groups. The paper focuses on what roles normative aspects play in the different approaches and new societal demands imposed on science and universities. View the paper
