Use our decision tree to find out what competencies are needed and how they can be developed at each stage in the collaboration process.
Our top tips for successful collaborations across disciplinary and geographic boundaries are:
- Understand the characteristics of collaboration – formal and informal and identify which you seek
- Identify the competencies you will need at each stage of collaboration; finding collaborators, building relationships and working together
- Map your skills to these competencies and identify areas for growth
Mapping competencies to Vitae’s Researcher Development Framework:
Each stage of the collaboration process maps to a domain or domains of Vitae’s Researcher Development Framework (RDF). Use our table to
