On Doing Research Together: The Science of Team Science
Scientific research is increasingly collaborative and cross-disciplinary, a reflection of the need to meet complex problems with complex responses. Climate change, clean water, poverty, community health — these challenges must be addressed at scale by teams of collaborators who coordinate their perspectives incoherent and sustainable ways. But what does effective research collaboration require? How can teams of investigators from different disciplines work together to produce coherent research responses? This forum will provide opportunities for researchers interested in team science and collaborative research to learn about recent work in the science of teams, long a research strength at MSU, and in the emerging field of the science of team science. Presentations will focus on multi-team systems, theoretical and empirical work in team science, successful team science projects here at MSU, future directions of team science, and the upcoming May 2019 Science of Team Science Conference in Lansing in May. The forum should be valuable for researchers who investigate team processes as well as investigators who work in research teams.
