Chemical Consultants Network ZOOM MEETING
EFFECTIVE COLLABORATION BETWEEN SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS?
Dr. Ron Bihovsky – Key Synthesis, LLC
David Vahlsing – Becht Engineer
DATE & TIME: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 6:30 pm
Location: Online via Zoom! (registration required, see below)
Abstract: Often, scientists must work effectively with people from other technical disciplines in order to deliver what clients need. For example, chemists and chemical engineers need to work together to advance successful manufacturing processes from the lab to the plant. However, chemists and chemical engineers often have different concerns, think in different ways, speak different “languages,” and have different definitions 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 disciplines collaborate and share how we overcame these issues. This meeting will be interactive as we explore how best to increase collaboration, synergy, and communication between scientists and engineers.
