Team Science at RENCI

Accelerating Collaborative Team Science (ACTS) is a Team Science educational program based at the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

ACTS functions as a connector, bridging the gap between researchers, coordinating centers, and other parties involved in practicing and promoting collaborative team science theory and practical applications across the scientific research landscape.

With twenty years of experience coordinating team science efforts, RENCI provides a unique vantage point for those seeking to understand the role of the coordinating center and the challenges specific to large, geographically dispersed scientific teams. 

ACTS is not affiliated with the grantmaking ACTeR Pilot Grant, a program of NC TraCS.
