Abstract

Research collaboration is increasingly interdisciplinary in nature, with those working in traditional scientific fields of science, technology, engineering and medicine recognizing the value of collaboration with those working in the, humanities, arts and social sciences. This chapter explores the challenges and opportunities for communication within and from cross-sectoral research teams. The authors draw examples from researched case studies to describe how cross-sectoral collaboration positions science within the social context. They also look at how crosssectoral communication relates to current models of science communication.
