Interestingly, they are words that combine within a broader definition of “teamworking” and research collaboration is sometimes described as an endeavor you are undertaking with a partner who shares your interests but has other interests too. But what are the barriers to interdisciplinary working? What are the rules of engagement and how can we ensure that all parties get benefit and value from the endeavour? What does it take to ensure that the activity is productive?
