WAITRO Event Series – Event 3

Good partnerships in research lead to excellence and innovation. That is a fact that every researcher knows. However, good partnerships are not always easy to institute.  

This practical workshop will highlight ways to conduct fair research and specifically look at IP rights in this context. In addition, research fairness reporting standards will be presented. To provide real insights, researchers from the Global South and – North will share their experiences with implementing these standards. 

If you want to build meaningful and trustworthy partnerships, this workshop is definitely for you.
