We provide assistance to investigators in connecting with collaborators and in developing interdisciplinary research plans, proposals, and programs through the use of team science best practices.
Team Science is a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to scientific inquiry where individuals across different disciplines work together in ways that leverage their diverse expertise.
We can coordinate and conduct events in response to requests from investigators.
While collaborative approaches have become more essential, there are many potential pitfalls that teams can face, especially newly made ones. Team members may not have a clear understanding of their role in the team structure, not have a shared expectation of how decisions will be made and how credit will be allocated, nor have the necessary cohesion with the other members.
In order to help avoid these potential problems in long-term projects, we can help coordinate and host events where collaborators can develop the necessary trust and cohesion, or see if they are compatible in the first place.
