Team Science

Team science is a collaborative effort to address a scientific challenge that leverages the strengths and expertise of professionals trained in different fields. Through this process, Team Science accelerates scientific innovation and the translation of scientific findings into effective policies and practices.

NJ ACTS offers seminars, credentialling, and a consultation service to expand and catalyze team science in the consortium and formalize and bolster training in multi-disciplinary team science.
