Abstract: Although diversity between team members may bring benefits of new perspectives, nevertheless, what holds a team together is some degree of similarity. We theorise that diversity in one dimension is traded off against diversity in another. Our analysis of collaborative research teams that received FP7 funding presents robust results that indicators of diversity in several dimensions – diversity of organizational form (universities, firms, etc.), diversity in nationality, and inequality in project funding share – are negatively correlated with each other.
