About the International Network for the Science of Team Science (INSciTS)

INSciTS is the member-based, 501(c)3 non-profit organization of team science and the Science of Team Science (SciTS) field.


INSciTS will create and facilitate a high-impact community that develops and disseminates an evidence-base to support team science and shapes how research is conducted to solve complex problems.


The problems impacting our world are increasingly complex, yet we are able to address them through scientific pursuit now more than ever. Addressing complex problems depends on cross-disciplinary collaboration, a key component of team science. INSciTS serves as a conduit to ensure that empirical findings about team science are accessible and useful for effective collaborative practice and policy, bridging both science and praxis. 

Who participates in INSciTS?

INSciTS membership draws together researchers, scholars, practitioners, funders, thought leaders, tool developers, policymakers, and institutional leaders from all disciplines and types of organizations. Together, we are dedicated to enhancing fundamental understanding of how to collaborate and to best support and foster team science. Research generated by INSciTS’ broad and diverse community can enhance the effectiveness of science teams, as well as diverse research collaborations across social sciences, humanities, and professions.

We strive as an organization to translate evidence-based findings to improve the global scientific enterprise and best serve society’s needs. Furthermore, INSciTS is focused on preparing the next generation of experts, equipped with the skills and perspectives necessary to lead, train, and participate in team science.
