    Due to unforeseen circumstances, Building a Collaborative International Network has been canceled. All registrants will receive a full refund. However, Dr. Terrie Taylor will still present a webinar on her experience building an international network. This webinar will begin at 6:00 PM on Thursday April 24. If you are interested in this presentation, please register for the webinar, which is available for free.

    In the future global economy, limited resources will demand increased international collaborations. These collaborations can occur as large-scale initiatives, such as the Human Genome Project or Large Hadron Collider, or small-scale collaborations between laboratories and businesses from different countries. However, cultural differences can often complicate and obstruct successful business and scientific collaborations.

    To succeed in the global economy, scientists and engineers must be able to network and communicate with professionals from different cultures and backgrounds. These skills are vital for career success in academia, government, and business.

    In this interactive event at the Academy, you will receive an introduction to:

    • Building and maintaining your network
    • Communicating in multi-cultural environments
    • Making connections and collaborations in new cultures

    This event can only accommodate a limited number of participants, so don't miss your chance to learn how to effectively build an international network. We will also provide a list of resources to help you continue your training after the event.
