R2G2: Engaging in Team Science
Tuesday, March 28, 2023 @ 11:30am-1pm PST, Zoom Webinar
Our ability to solve increasingly complex problems depends on continued specialization of research expertise and more effective interaction and integration of scientists on a single research project.
Join us to hear Dr. L. Michelle Bennett explain the characteristics, processes, and dynamics that contribute to a successful multi-faceted research team and provide guidance and training on how team science should be initiated, conducted, and evaluated to conquer scientific challenges. Participants will also learn to develop strategies to prevent, reduce, and mitigate conflict among researchers when engaging in team science.
