Just a point to materials from a National Academies Workshop on Institutional and Organizational Supports for Team Science. The workshop looked at:

  • How do current tenure and promotion policies acknowledge and provide incentives to academic researchers who engage in team science?

  • What factors influence the productivity and effectiveness of research organizations that conduct and support team science, such as research centers and institutes? How do such organizational factors as human resource policies and practices and cyber infrastructure affect team and collaborative science?

  • What types of organizational structures, policies, practices and resources are needed to promote effective team science, in academic institutions, research centers, industry, and other settings?

In particular there were some great papers and materials made available.
