NERRS Science Collaborative: Collaboration Resources

What is the value of collaborative research?

The ability to produce usable science is greatly enhanced when researchers understand and are responsive to the interests and needs of end users; likewise, the application of knowledge increases when end users understand and are responsive to the capabilities of science to address the problem and actively seek to incorporate the research into management plans and decision processes.

Developing and managing a collaborative approach

Collaboration succeeds when there is a clear purpose, motivated participants, and a carefully-structured and well-managed iterative process between science producers and users.
