Getting What You Measure: Incentives for Collaboration

Wednesday, July 12, 2017
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Harborside 4

Incentives for academic and industry scientists are not always aligned with the kinds of behaviors we all say we want to see more of in science – more open sharing of data and knowledge, more team science and transdisciplinary work to solve challenging problems, more cross-sector collaboration to speed development of promising ideas. How can we encourage life science organizations to change their culture to promote collaboration? How can we show collective impact in a way that aligns incentives across sectors and institutions?
