In September this year, Piirus surveyed researchers worldwide, from
across multiple disciplines. 346 researchers responded, and two key findings were:

- 91% agreed collaboration increases research impact
So in many respects it is no surprise that 94% of respondents were interested in interdisciplinary collaboration.
Here is our infographic with more information about what researchers said:
