Even the most accomplished researchers take part in only 3-5 consortium projects throughout their career. Does it make sense to spend time and effort in learning how to design and implement consortium projects at the expense of your research?

The thing is, you don't have to.

When I moved to Europe in 2006 I was not able to continue my research career because of cross-border work permitting issues. I ended up supporting the development of a proposal for an Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) consortium project. When that was successful I had no lab of my own, so I focused on the process of delivering that project.

Enamoured by the cohesive interaction between partners in that consortium and the resulting capability to make a real difference I became entirely focused on the strategic design and guidance of consortium projects.

Scott Wagers
MD - The "Consortium Whisperer"

When teams of individuals with diverse backgrounds think together to develop ideas and solve problems, they generate know-how that is hard to get in any other way.

Having had the privilege to bear witness to this process in more than 10.000 hours of dialogue in multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder teams across many different scientific domains. Scott brings an unusual depth of experience to each project.

He provides both intellectual input as well as guidance on the principles and processes of working well together in consortia.
