It outside an organisation. Collaboration can occur

It is important
for engineers to be able to co-operate and share information efficiently and
effectively both within and outside an organisation. Collaboration can occur
across a multitude of different disciplines and professions and may eventuate
between members of the engineering team, clients or with other departments and
agencies. With engineering being a team-based profession, developing the
ability to work in teams is a desirable characteristic to possess.
