Chemical Consultants Network: Effective Collaboration Between Scientists and Engineers?


Often, scientists must work effectively with people from other technical disciplines in order todeliver what clients need. For example, chemists and chemical engineers need to work together to advancesuccessful manufacturing processes from the lab to the plant. However, chemists and chemical engineersoften have different concerns, think in different ways, speak different “languages,” and have differentdefinitions of a good process and project success. Project success is often tied to how well we collaborate.In this meeting we will discuss the challenges we have seen when people from different technical disciplinescollaborate and share how we overcame these issues. This meeting will be interactive as we explore howbest to increase collaboration, synergy, and communication between scientists and engineers.
