The Role of Team Science for a More Inclusive and Interdisciplinary European Research Area
Enhancing the attractiveness of research careers across the Union is a vital element of the new European Research Area (ERA). In this respect, the Council Conclusions from May 2021 focuses on the creation of an inclusive and supportive working environment for researchers, strengthened by the use of more talent-based and diversity-sensitive quality measurement which includes, among others, management and leadership skills, entrepreneurship, team science and collaboration.
This interactive session will reflect on the value and opportunities related to strengthening an academic infrastructure that supports and recognizes the role of inclusive and interdisciplinary team Science. Policy and academic experts, as well as funders, will be invited to discuss a variety of core questions, ranging from socio-economic impacts, key features of successful funding models, modes of research inclusivity, and more. Mentimeter will be used to survey the audience and derive key outcomes from the discussions.
