Register Today for the AIBS Interdisciplinary and Team Science Professional Development Program

Event date(s): Monday, January 14, 2019 to Tuesday, January 15, 2019
Location: AIBS Washington, DC, Offices, 1201 New York Avenue, NW, Suite 420, Washington, DC 20005


Dear Colleague,

Reports abound from professional societies, the Academies, government agencies, and researchers calling attention to the fact that science is increasingly an inter-disciplinary, transdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and international endeavor. In short, science has become a “team sport.”

There is a real and present need to better prepare scientists for success in this new collaborative environment. The American Institute of Biological Sciences is responding to this call with a new program for scientists, educators, and individuals who work with or participate in scientific teams.

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, 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, with scientific case studies and examples.

Who should attend?

  • Research program/lab directors
  • Scientists and faculty engaged in collaborative projects
  • Researchers and faculty working at the interface of different fields or scientific approaches
  • Graduate students and post-docs looking to augment research planning and communication skills
  • Groups interested in planning successful research proposals and interdisciplinary research teams
  • 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.

Participants will develop and hone the skills needed to: 

  • Explain interdisciplinary team science and characteristics of effective scientific teams
  • Describe how teams work
  • Recognize competencies and characteristics of effective team leadership
  • Create effective teams and team culture
  • Develop a shared vision, mission, plan, and key performance indicators for a scientific team
  • Identify and assess the right mix of competencies and people needed for a scientific team
  • Use team tools and processes such as quality improvement cycle and knowledge mapping
  • Improve team communication and trust

Dates: January 14-15, 2019

Location: AIBS Washington, DC, Offices, 1201 New York Avenue, NW, Suite 420, Washington, DC 20005

Cost: The registration fee covers instruction, materials and resources, and breakfast and lunch during the program. Transportation and lodging are not included, but AIBS can offer recommendations about lodging options.
