Team science is designed to promote collaborative and often inter-disciplinary approaches to answering research questions. RTNN social science research will attempt to determine why some laboratories are more productive than others at these activities and whether some activities are more likely to be amenable to collaborative approaches. As part of this work, the RTNN SEIN team assesses the success of Network programming in user recruitment, public engagement, and cross-discipline decision-making through rigorous social science research methods. SEIN research enhances the study of team science by creating a unique data set based on the activities and interactions within the RTNN. Check back for more information as our team publishes its findings. Contact David Berube, RTNN SEIN Coordinator, for information or collaboration on our team science research program.
