Bridging in network organisations. The case of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is based on an original dataset of more than 8,000 individuals who have contributed to the IPCC since 1988, with a focus on individuals who have contributed to keeping together the different components of the IPCC: function, Working Group and Assessment Report. To study relational bridging, the data was structured into participants-workstreams affiliation networks and used it to compute several metrics of bridgeness, in order to observe its general distribution, and the evolution of bridging. The study also identified bridging roles of individuals: temporal, thematic and functional, and qualitatively analyses their career in the IPCC.
