    This study is an ethnography of an academic research group, and it distinguishes itself since it aims to understand how practices of team and identity building unfold in daily routines. In fact, literature on research groups belongs especially to laboratory studies, a sub discipline of science and technology studies, and it is strongly focused on epistemic practices (Doing, 2008; Sismondo, 2011). Consequently, practices of team building and identity shaping are not deepened in the literature on research groups. We will also show how ethnographic work strategically contributes to unveil such practices.
