SESYNC will hold a 1.5-day workshop focused on team science and the fundamentals of organizational management. The workshop will be held at SESYNC’s facilities in Annapolis, Maryland. SESYNC will provide funding for travel, lodging, and meals for 30 on-site participants, and the workshop will also be web streamed for additional remote participants.
This preparatory activity will introduce participants to ways to plan and respond to the NSF “Accelerating Research through International Network-to-Network Collaborations” (AccelNet) Call for Proposals, which funds the development of international networks-of-networks.
Participants will gain an enhanced understanding of the critical roles played by leadership styles, well-developed organizational and communication strategies, establishment of a shared vision and goals, data management/sharing agreements, and adaptation as network needs change.
Discussions and presentations during the workshop will include material on effective network communication, participant engagement, network leadership, and management techniques that are effective at fostering and leveraging existing US investments in critical research networks. The workshop will explore examples and include exercises for participants to begin to implement concepts into practice.
