The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is currently accepting abstract submissions for the 2019 Fall Meeting. The meeting will be held 9-13 December 2019 in San Francisco, California.

Conveners of the following session invite abstract submissions:

SESSION PA027: Growing Pains: Overcoming Obstacles and Working Together to Improve Research Collaboration in Science

Conveners: Brit Myers, Pips Veazey, and Kaare Erickson

“Growing Convergence Research” is currently one of the National Science Foundation’s “10 Big Ideas” focusing research investment. Defined as a means for solving complex problems focused on societal needs, convergence research entails integrating knowledge, methods, and expertise across disciplines and forming novel frameworks to catalyze scientific discovery and innovation.

A number of NSF's other “Big Ideas” also emphasize research convergence. For example, with the recent Navigating the New Arctic proposals, considerable effort was made to initiate new project partnerships across disciplines, institutions, and knowledge systems. However, challenges and barriers to building diverse scientific partnerships, teams, and communities remain.

This session invites abstracts exploring convergence and trans-disciplinary research project approaches and frameworks; the development and facilitation of successful research teams and communities; and ideas for community-wide strategies promoting equitable and effective collaborations across disciplines and knowledge systems.
