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.
 
To foster a Team Science approach, NJ ACTS will develop workshops and retreats to expand and catalyze team science, ensure that collaborative research is a positive factor in promotion/tenure and formalize and bolster training in multi-disciplinary team science.
