Building Successful Interdisciplinary Systems Projects
As the mandates and opportunities increase for researchers to participate in large, complex systems projects, it can be useful to learn more about the challenges these efforts pose, and how they've been handled by other collaborations. This interactive lecture will describe a dozen "ingredients of success" for interdisciplinary research teams, and illustrate each with examples from an extensive seven-year project on food security in the Northeast United States.
