This World Café session features expert contributors exploring the mechanisms underlying the positive impact of international collaborations on research performance, innovation and society as a whole. The session will disentangle how convergence and divergence in research cultures and practices are manifest in these collaborations, and shed light on key competencies needed by globally mobile researchers navigating this evolving landscape and those seeking to network and collaborate transnationally.
The session is designed to engage participants in discussions and to provide an opportunity to share best practice. Outputs will be captured to facilitate future collaborations in research and innovation.
This session is curated by Dr Jane Wellens, Head of the Graduate School, University of Nottingham, UK and Dr Alison Mitchell, Director of Development, Vitae, UK as part of our 2015 guest curated session series.
