An evaluation of the processes and outcomes of interdisciplinary type of inquiry in the government research centers of Brazil is conducted in order to capitalize on the strengths and point out pitfalls. High- and low-performing projects are contrasted when it comes to conflict management, interpersonal relationships, size, and extent of interdisciplinarity. These explicit and implicit interests in the supervision of interdisciplinary research development are caused by four factors: (1) problems are to be accounted for by variables coming from different fields; (2) some topics are unresolved through departmental perspective, hence identifying them as handled under cross-disciplinary approaches; (3) the need for increased levels of specialization is prevalent; and (4) the importance of the integration of knowledge from various fields has been recognized.

Keywords:   interdisciplinary approach, research centers, conflict management, interpersonal relationships, integration
