International Research Roundtable 2014: Transnational Research Collaboration

What explains the rise in global research collaboration? How do institutions choose transnational partners? And how do they align transnatioieaa-research-roundtable-2014-programnal research collaboration to their broader strategic priorities?

These are just some of the key questions that will shape the conversation at IEAA’s upcoming International Research Roundtable at AIEC in Brisbane.

This year’s program focuses on ‘Transnational Research Collaboration’ and will continue discussions from the recent IEAA–APAIE symposium on Internationalisation of Higher Education in the Asia-Pacific held in Hong Kong.

The roundtable includes:

  • leading Australian and international experts in transnational research collaboration;
  • a review of current research in the area;
  • an expert panel addressing the key themes; and
  • a ‘Cafe Scientifique’ opportunity for participants to engage in deep discussion of key ideas.

Key themes

  • What explains the interest in global collaboration? How does it reveal the ways in which knowledge is now produced and disseminated?
  • How do higher education institutions justify and align transnational research collaboration to their broader strategic priorities?
  • How do institutions choose transnational research partners? How do they view and manage opportunities and negotiate challenges associated with the issue of ownership and commercialisation, as well as differences across cultural and academic traditions?

  • Ms Laura Howard – Vice-President, European Association for International Education (EAIE)
