Cross-Departmental Collaboration at BSC: Success Stories and a Workshop (Tuesday May 9th, 2023 14:00h-17:30h)

Cross-departmental collaboration is when a group of people with different job responsibilities or functions come together and work towards a common goal, project or solution. It can also be when people with similar job responsibilities or functions from different departments meet and work together. It leads to more ideas, shared workloads, significant process improvements and a culture of continuous learning.


The objective of this tutorial is to learn about the potential of cross-departamental collaborations and discover who you could colaborate with.


This tutorial will be divided in two parts:

14:00h - 15:00h Alba Jené (Bioinformatics Unit Coordinator, LS), Carlos García y Guillermo Marin (Data Pre&Post Processing Researchers, CASE), Daniele Lezzi (Workflows and Distributed Computing Established Researcher, CS) and Albert Soret (Earth System Services Group Leader, ES) will present several cross-departmental collaborations at BSC and share tips and advice on how to network and collaborate.

15:30h - 17:30h Hands-on workshop: Discover who you could collaborate with.
Following a speed-dating structure, participants will have 6’ to share one-on-one informal discussions with peer colleagues to ask questions and explore specific areas of their research and practices (several rounds of discussions). The aim is to find a person to collaborate with or to explore what others do to engage in a potential future collaboration.
