Intereach Workshop @ 2017 Science of Team Science Conference

  • Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa 301 South Gulfview Boulevard Clearwater, FL 33767 USA (map)

1/2 Day Workshop: Self-Identifying the Knowledge, Skills, and Dispositional Attributes that Define the Intereach Community

Lead Facilitator:  Christine Ogilvie Hendren, Duke University

Co-Facilitators:  Gabriele Bammer, Australian National University; Holly Falk-Krzesinski, Elsevier

Description:  This workshop addresses a new but growing SciTS-generated community of practice and research: Intereach (Interdisciplinary Integration Research Careers Hub). The Intereach community has evolved around a broadly shared need for new types of roles to be defined, recognized, institutionally supported and trained in order to optimize the success of interdisciplinary scientific endeavors. We will cover the new forms of expertise needed to address complex problems and effectively engage diverse knowledge bases and work at the interfaces between disciplines to help facilitate, optimize, and translate, research outcomes.

Registration for this workshop and the meeting as a whole is still open!
