Funding the Transition: Making the Move from Individual Research to the Team Science Approach
Cross-disciplinary collaboration has become a necessity for those who wish to take their research program in new directions. Funding agencies solicit grants and contracts for team research projects with increasing frequency, but developing, preparing and overseeing these complex projects presents new challenges. This symposium was targeted to those faculty who are ready to make the transition from individual awards to these more high profile, multidisciplinary projects.
Faculty members who have successfully made this transition addressed the opportunities and challenges of obtaining funding for large-scale collaborative research projects, both grants and contracts.
Conference materials for the symposium included an agenda and an overview of services provided by Research Program Development.
