Generate many paths forward while connecting across ways of knowing & doing. Informed by organizers, rooted in team science, and driven by participants, our approach expands on 12 years of designing and evaluating interdisciplinary conferences & grants at the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. We’re pretty confident in our approach. We’ve been creating dynamic, memorable, curiosity-driven workshops for top-notch researchers since 2006.
Convergence research isn’t only for creating new scientific knowledge, it is a potentially transformative process for those involved.
From focusing the topic to preparing participants to collaborate, we work with you every step of the way to create a meaning- and momentum-making experience for everyone
Identify a topic with a clear focus, broad interest, and high impact
Activate engagement and action for all participants in advance of the meeting
Attend to the structure and surroundings to create a creative and special environment
Continue the momentum and connections after the conference
Exploring convergence means creating a space where a multitude of perspectives not only co-exist, but interact, blend, and belong.
Start your campus seed grant program with a workshop to reveal the demand for collaboration and uncover the themes of interest of faculty
Build a Convergence Activator workshop into your federally-funded planning grant or as the foundation for larger funding.
Design a new convergence research program with multiple workshops on connected topics over several years.
