ICCA – AIBS Team Science Workshop – October 2017
Oct 27 @ 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

Team science is increasingly common in 21st century biological, life, and environmental sciences. Collaboration is no longer limited to sharing ideas with the biologist in the lab next door. The questions confronting science often require teams that may include a mix of computer and information scientists, physical and social scientists, mathematicians, ethicists, and even policy and management experts, as well as community stakeholders and citizen scientists. Adding to this complexity, teams span programs within organizations, cross organization boundaries to form institutional consortia, and often include international partners.

This intensive, two-day, interactive, professional development course was developed by scientists and experts on collaboration and teamwork to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to become productive and effective members of scientific teams.

Nothing teaches collaboration like practicing collaboration. This is not a course that asks you to learn in isolation. It is a microcosm of scientific collaboration, with extensive hands-on learning as part of a scientific team.

Who should attend?
• Research program managers
• Departmental leaders
• Scientists engaged in collaborative projects
• Graduate students and post-docs looking to augment basic research skills
• Scientists working at the interface of different fields
• Groups interested in developing successful research proposals
• Academic, government, and industry scientists

This course is designed for anyone involved in collaborative scientific endeavors. Team leaders will find the course especially helpful. Because participants will work on “real-world” team science concerns, we encourage multiple members of a team to attend together.

AIBS staff members have used their decades of science policy and communications experience to develop training materials and resources that provide scientists with the skills needed to successfully communicate about their research with decision-makers and reporters.

Participants will develop and hone the skills needed to:
• Engage in collaborative scientific ventures
• Eliminate barriers to effective team science
• Execute the factors that make collaborations successful
• Build the right scientific team
• Perform with a variety of personalities and work approaches
• Create a team roadmap
• Enact the five keys to leadership
• Develop effective communication strategies and techniques
• Facilitate scientific collaborations
• Apply practical solutions for team science concerns

Spots are limited.
