WAITRO Event Series: Capacity Development on Diversity in International Research Cooperation

Building Successful and Sustainable Partnerships in Cross-border Collaboration

The diversity of research teams in international research cooperation is crucial to make a real impact. But how can we ensure these partnerships are sustainable and successful? Anyone who wants to build lasting relationships across borders and boundaries needs to reckon with the fact that historically grown structures create more obstacles for some than others, resulting in different experiences.

With this in mind, the WAITRO Office Germany is hosting the WAITRO Event Series: Capacity Development on Diversity in International Research Cooperation. Three events to highlight ways to successfully navigate diversity in international research projects.

Roundtable International Research

The event series kicks off on June 2nd with a Roundtable on Managing Diversity in International Research. Leading experts will share their perspectives on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) framework of the European Commission.

Next on June 15th, the workshop A Practical Introduction to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), will give an introduction to the principles of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and its implementation in application-oriented research.

Responsible Research and Innovation
Research Partnerships Intellectual Property

Finally on June 28th, in collaboration with the partner Research Fairness Initiative (RFI), WAITRO hosts a workshop on Fair Research Partnerships and the Role of Intellectual Property (IP). This practical workshop will highlight ways to conduct fair research and the specific role of IP rights in this context.
