What did we learn about Team Science at SciTS 2018?
As you will have learnt from our "What does Team Science mean to the MCRC" article, a big part of our role in the Operations team is to bring together our disease site, and cross-cutting theme, groups to town-hall meetings. The aim of these larger assemblies is to form ideas for team science projects.
Whilst the concept of teamwork and collaboration is familiar to most, the idea of Team Science specifically (and how best to facilitate this) was one that I wanted to find out more about.
As such, from 21st- 24th May 2018, I attended the Science of Team Science 2018 (SciTS) conference in Galveston, Texas.
