Scientific research world-wide is increasingly being characterized by collaboration. In this study Ms Emerre found that researchers and funding agencies promote collaboration for quite different reasons; researchers collaborate for tactical and personal reasons but overall to get better research outcomes. For funding agencies collaboration can promote quality, augment resources, and ensure that New Zealand researchers can work with the best that the world has to offer.  Today science is seen as a key driver in economic development and success and as resources become leaner and the demand for accountability stronger, there is a renewed interest in areas such as research competencies, the training and professional development of researchers, leadership of research teams, and management of research projects. This thesis concludes with a set of recommendations for researchers.
