Collaborating across the sectors

Department of Education, Science and Technology, 2005–06

Working with the Council for Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, we studied how the humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) sector collaborates with the science, technology, engineering and medicine (STEM) disciplines.

As part of our research, we conducted an international literature review, interviews and focus groups, and a national survey for input to our analysis and recommendations. We also reviewed 10 case studies in depth.

The outcome: A report to the federal Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Technology describing best practices for collaborating across HASS-STEM disciplines, and recommendations for government, industry, education and institutions to encourage and support cross-sectoral collaboration.
