The late stages of a project life cycle raise interlocking challenges of sustaining participation and producing results. External incentives and material challenges weigh more heavily, requiring attention to sociability and the transitions of junior researchers. With mutual knowledge gained, research team activities can shift from generative ambiguity to clarification, identifying unexpected points of convergence and laying out the stakes of irreconciliable differences. These activities in Göttingen offered hindsight to be reaped in subsequent projects regarding mechanisms for capturing emergent insights as well as sustaining an ecology of project "outputs": scholarly and public, disciplinary and interdisciplinary publications. In the absence of consensus on policy recommendations, projects can serve the public through communication elucidating the stakes of hot problems and the institutional contexts of proposed solutions.
