Resources to enhance your team-based research -- The “Team Science Toolkit” website

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has developed the Team Science Toolkit that provides knowledge and practical tools to enhance team-based research. Resources in the Toolkit can help you engage in, manage, support, or evaluate team-based research.

There is a growing body of knowledge about how to enhance team collaboration in science to maximize productivity and innovation. But this knowledge may be hard to access, as it is generated by multiple fields, including communications, management sciences, psychology, and information technology. In addition, many researchers do not have the time to search the academic literature.

The Team Science Toolkit puts this knowledge at your fingertips. It consolidates information and practical tools in one accessible online location.
