Team Science

Team Science is defined as a collaborative effort to address a scientific challenge that leverages the strengths and expertise of professionals trained in different fields. As the research landscape continues to develop into ever more interdisciplinary methods, it is vital that the CSU research enterprise grows and transforms along with it.

Understanding team science means understanding the vast and complicating factors involved in bringing team members from entirely different fields together to perform challenging research. With this in mind, RAO and the OVPR team have brought a new, intense focus to CSU’s team science endeavor, providing resources to aid teams in their goals, along with managing the dynamics of interdisciplinary science.
