Examining Core Elements of International Research Collaboration: Summary of a Workshop

Edit resource

A working group of the National Academies’ Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR) organized and hosted a workshop in July 2010 titled "Examining Core Elements of International Research Collaboration" that considered a number of content domains, including: cultural differences and nuances, legal issues and agreements, ethics, research integrity and the responsible conduct of research, risk management, intellectual property, and export controls. This is a published workshop summary report from that meeting. Excerpt from introduction: The globalization of research has important implications for the U.S. research enterprise, for the U.S. government agencies, academic institutions, and companies that support and perform research, and for the world at large. As science and technology capabilities grow around the world, U.S.-based organizations are finding that international collaborations and partnerships provide unique opportunities to enhance research and training. At the same time, significant obstacles exist to smooth collaboration across national borders. Enhancing international collaboration requires recognition of differences in culture, legitimate national security needs, and critical needs in education and training.
