Guide Tool: Mapping Team Roles and Responsibilities

A well-rounded team with the right skills and resources is critical for executing a successful collaborative science project.

This table in this tool will help you think carefully about your team roster, allocate enough time and resources to key tasks, and prepare for the unique challenges of collaborative science. Once completed, the table can also help you develop strategies for coordinating the team, explain a project team in a grant proposal, or construct a project charter if desired.
