Organizers announce their session, titled Experiences in Sustaining Collaborative Arctic Research Teams, during Arctic Science Summit Week 2021 (ASSW2021). There will be two sessions held on 25 March 25 at 11:30-13:30 GMT and 15:30-17:30 GMT.

Each session will include oral presentations and lightning talks from poster presenters followed by an interactive discussion among participants to share successes, failures, and challenges faced when building and sustaining collaborative research teams. Additional resources shared by participants will also be made available after the session on the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) website.

Session description:

Recognition of the connected nature of the Arctic has precipitated the growth of interdisciplinary Arctic research efforts internationally. Collaborative research teams have developed from informal discussions and formal agreements of large, interdisciplinary projects. While scientific results may get a lot of exposure, the best practices for supporting the participation of diverse partners from the outset of planning proposals, and supporting research teams that cross knowledge systems are often not shared widely. This session invites contributions from researchers across career levels to share experiences from participation in interdisciplinary teams on topics such as sustaining effective communication in teams or developing long term relationships among collaborators. Conveners welcome insight from research teams that range in size, but that cross disciplinary and institutional boundaries with projects occurring from local to international scales. Session contributors will be invited to share materials on best practices for developing and sustaining research teams to be hosted on the ARCUS website.
