Collaboration – Changes in research, knowledge creation

A new culture of learning is together with the Internet pushing the boundaries of research and knowledge creation. On a journey from Danish biology garages to Google’s headquarters, the film explores how the Internet is changing the ways in which we do science and create knowledge.

‘Collaboration – On the Edge of a New Paradigm?’ explains the philosophical and scientific development from the idea of the isolated geniuses or science created in isolated paradigms, to how interdisciplinary collaboration seems to be a requirement to face the grand challenges of todays society .

Rise Above follows a team of UK College of Engineering faculty and students pushing the boundaries of engineering and mathematics to new levels.

The documentary opens as a group of senior engineering students begin their attempt to design and build a remote controlled aircraft capable of speeds up to 100 miles per hour to collect research data. As the story follows their yearlong attempt to fly this research plane, we meet other students who, along with their faculty mentors, are creating new solutions for practical problems in aeronautics.

The film features engineering faculty including Suzanne Weaver Smith, Sean Bailey, Jesse Hoagg, and Michael Siegler, along with graduate students Mark Miller, John Calhoun and B.J. Wellman.
