    • 6. Why collaborate?
    • 7. Collaboration is a recursive process where two or morepeople or organizations work together intersection of common goals by sharing knowledge, learning and building consensus
    • 8. Collaboration is thesuspension of mutualhatred and distrust for mutual gain
    • 9. Collaboration allows us tocreate partnerships which enable better research
    • 10. The Collaborations Workshop is the SSI’s way of getting researchers and softwaredevelopers working together to solve research problems. We provide the coffee…… you provide the collaboration!
