We demonstrate that cosmic-ray muography is a fundamentally multidisciplinary research field requiring an outreaching and transdisciplinary approach to support and speed up its current positive growth stage. The transit from expert-driven multidisciplinary research to interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research requires publishing and promoting muography on multiple fronts and languages. Still, as the rewards for the muography community are likely great indeed, we call for collaborative actions and a change in the research strategy paradigm. Due to this end, we suggest a list of task points for the presentday muography community to get muography better acknowledged and as appealing as possible for the newcomers interested in developing muography or applying it in their respective applications.
