Oregon Project

Elucidating the practice of interdisciplinary and actionable science

September 2023 - June 2025


Participating Agencies


This project addresses three research questions: (1) What skills and abilities (including specific behaviors, cognitive habits and emotional approaches) are helpful and/or necessary to do user- focused applied science, particularly in collaborative and/or interdisciplinary settings? (2) How did scientists currently using user-focused applied science, transdisciplinary, and team science approaches develop the skills and abilities upon which they currently rely? (3) How can scientific organizations and teams build scientists’ capacity to do user-focused applied science, transdisciplinary research, and/or team science?
