A scale for measurement of Teamwork Attitudes and Skills (TAS) of research groups (components of competencies) is developed in this study, based on previous research and studies by Odelius and Sena (2009) and Odelius et al. (2011). Data were collected by means of interviews and questionnaires. Interview data were submitted to content analysis, and then used to develop a questionnaire. This questionnaire was submitted to judges for theoretical and semantic validation and was pre-tested. It was then answered by 396 participants of research groups. Factor analysis of ordinal variables revealed four competency factors (openness to human diversity; social skills, cooperation, and responsibility) that represent 55% of total variance explained, with reliability α = 0.96. The results are partially similar to those carried out in other contexts. Directions for further research are indicated at the end of the paper.
