Cyber-ShARE Team Science

Like many other large, complex research efforts, Cyber-ShARE depends on the effective combination of expertise from many different disciplines -- especially computer science, geoscience, and environmental science. Little is known about how to manage interdisciplinary research teams such that synergistic outcomes emerge. At Cyber-ShARE, we are creating a technical infrastructure to support science, but we are also interested in institutional policies and procedures; social networking; cooperative learning; boundary crossing; and entrepreneurship. All of these are necessary prerequisites for the kind of creatively-inspired, technology-enabled, socially-relevant research that we envision for the 21st century. At Cyber-ShARE, we aim to harness all of these in pursuit of excellence.
