ABSTRACT:

In order to assess the impacts on stakeholder decisions and actions linked to iUTAH's social and engineering science and research efforts, interviews were conducted in 2017 with 17 researchers and 13 external partners (who were identified by researchers as having been involved in collaborative efforts). Interviews were recorded, transcribed and analyzed thematically for reporting. For 16 participants (8 researchers and 8 external partners), a revised informed consent process was conducted in which they all agreed to be identified in project reporting on 4 case studies. All other participants remain confidential per the original informed consent process. We have included the interview protocols (questions) for researchers and partners (as questions asked to the researchers and partners differed slightly) as well as a summary report of findings. An article based on these interviews is published as follows: Flint CG, KT Dean, B Yang, and D Jackson-Smith. 2019. Socio-scientific research and practice: evaluating outcomes from a transdisciplinary urban water systems project. Socio-Ecological Practice Research. https://doi.org/10.1007/s42532-019-00007-5

ABSTRACT:

This project involved 20 semi-structured interviews with iUTAH researchers to ask questions pertaining to teamwork processes inherent in large scale interdisciplinary projects. Additionally, questions pertaining to project success and project evaluation were asked. Interviews were conducted either in-person with researchers who were located in the state, and over the phone with researchers who were located out of the state. Interviews were recorded and transcribed and analyzed for the aforementioned themes. Interviews may not be shared in order to protect the identify of participants. At the completion of the project, a masters thesis will be made publicly available describing the methods and findings from this project.
