I’ll be participating in this exciting NSF science retreat this fall:
2017 CREDITS Team Science Retreat
Strengthening Capacity for Diverse Scientific Teams in California
OCTOBER 13-15, 2017 AT UCLA LAKE ARROWHEAD CONFERENCE CENTER
Center for Research, Diversity, and Excellence in Team Science | UC Santa Barbara
Collaborative, interdisciplinary team science-based research has become increasingly central in scientific discovery. Team science garners more funding, and more impactful research and publications. Having a strong network of collaborators and mentors is critical to a productive and successful academic career.
In a small group environment, the CREDITS Team Science Retreat will promote team science competencies and leadership capacity of faculty, researchers, and post-doctoral scholars across campuses of the University of California and Cal State University systems. In particular, the Retreat targets women and underrepresented minorities who want to become involved in team science initiatives. A new cohort of researchers will be selected to participate each year.
The Retreat features presentations, workshops, breakout sessions, and one-on-one consultation on team science dynamics and leadership, research design, and proposal writing.
