Sponsored by National Estuarine Research Reserve System Science Collaborative. More information here.
Collaborative science involves working closely with partners and users at every stage - from conceptualizing a new project to conducting the research to refining tools to best meet a management need. As a result, it’s challenging to envision how the practice of collaborative science will adapt to our new, socially-distanced reality. This panel discussion will explore some of the many implications of planning and conducting collaborative science virtually. Our three panelists have expertise in collaborative processes, stakeholder engagement, and virtual meeting design, and like all of us, they are learning more about the challenges and opportunities of virtual engagement. The discussion will build on the needs and strategies identified by participants and initiate an ongoing dialogue about virtual engagement for collaborative science. While no one has all the answers, we are eager to learn together. Therefore please complete the additional questions in the registration form and submit ideas and questions during the webinar. A summary of responses will be shared during and after the webinar, including techniques, tools and resources that others are finding valuable.
