    One way to encourage collaborations and interdisciplinary research is to provide better university level support for campus-wide research data management systems, e.g. electronic lab notebooks, inventory systems, etc.. Instead of every faculty, centre or department building or purchasing their own RDMS, the university could explore purchasing a single system that could be used by multiple research units. CambridgeSoft’s ChemBioOffice suite of products is one example. One common system could make it easier for researchers to work collaboratively, share data, manage lab inventories, etc.
