Welcome to the Team Science module! Transdisciplinary collaboration has become more prevalent in this era as many disciplines of study have begun encouraging collaborative efforts that unite researchers from diverse scientific backgrounds to address complex questions and societal problems with a multidisciplinary approach.
The Team Science Learning Module explores the fundamentals of team science, factors contributing to effective teams, team science in context of institutional and external incentive structures, and required physical and technical environments to support team science.
