International Research Collaboration
Expanding your network and advancing research can go hand in hand.
Published February 25, 2014
As a scientist, chances are your work is no longer confined to one lab, one organization, or even one country. While projects such as the Large Hadron Collider provide dramatic examples of “big science,” countless examples of everyday international research collaboration don’t rely on multi-billion dollar budgets. Whether you keep up on the research progress of colleagues overseas through journals, meet potential collaborators at international conferences, or spend time emailing researchers at sister universities across time zones, it’s clear that international collaboration is a critical factor in advancing important scientific work.
Consider the following Academy events and resources to help you expand your scientific network and take advantage of a world of collaborative opportunities.
