More information will be available soon.  > See 2018 edition's highlights


I2Insights blog

Interested in the top ten tips for collaboration and team science? How about lessons from Latin America on institutionalising interdisciplinarity (also published in Spanish), or competences required for transdisciplinary research and how they can be taught? Would a checklist for knowledge synthesis be helpful? Curious about changes over time in a group’s knowledge synthesis about participatory modelling?

New official society for Science of Team Science

The newly formed International Network for the Science of Team Science (INSciTS) will now be the official society of the Science of Team Science community. INSciTS membership draws together researchers, scholars, practitioners, funders, thought leaders, tool developers, policymakers, and institutional leaders from all disciplines and types of organizations. Research generated by INSciTS’ broad and diverse community can enhance the effectiveness of science teams, as well as diverse research collaborations across social sciences, humanities, and professions. Furthermore, INSciTS is focused on preparing the next generation of experts, equipped with the skills and perspectives necessary to lead, train, and participate in team science. > More information (coming soon)
