Abstract

Teamwork helps to enhance the productivity and efficiency of the work. Therefore, teamwork has been studied in some aspects as: model of development stages, roles of individual and psychology in a group. The scientific working group (SWG) is a science-friendly environment where scientists can exchange expertise, join forces, and work together to reach and settle new problems of science. SWG can attract near-discipline scientists to develop intensively an academic environment, or to attract scientists from different domains to focus their ability to solve together an interdisciplinary problem. Scientists face many difficulties in forming research groups, one of which is the lack of teamwork skills. The paper consists of three parts: an overview of model on development stages, the roles of individual in a research group and psychology in the group; Research directions on SWG and recommendations for Vietnamese universities to develop research teams.
