This chapter examines whether the concept and practice of academic trading zones can be applied to business. It identifies certain characteristics of the interdisciplinarity of sciences in trading zones that merit closer examination from a business perspective: (1) No-man’s-land: A structured site for exchange; (2) creating a common language of exchange; (3) creating a culture of exchange beyond language; (4) creating special structures for exchange; and (5) trading zones for business: Open questions.

Keywords:   academic trading zones, business, interdisciplinary sciences, language, exchange
