A GSF Event: Research collaboration in low- and middle- income countries - findings, lessons and ways forward for implementing Agenda 2030​​

A GSF Event Research collaboration in low- and middle- income countries - findings, lessons and ways forward

​Collaboration across national borders and academic disciplines is more important than ever. In practice, however, international collaboration often faces challenges that arise from differences in contexts, incentives and traditions. We are convinced that these can be overcome and that we can do more and do better. You are invited to a conference that brings together people from different academic backgrounds and contexts with a common interest to collaborate across borders in order to learn, share and overcome obstacles.
Global Sustainable Futures is organising an event on November 25th 9-12.

 
The Global Sustainable Futures Event objectives Increase the visibility of researchers, research findings and research interests to stimulate and strengthen/develop more collaboration across disciplines, universities and geographical boundaries. Share experiences of successful research collaboration with low- and middle income countries (for instance good examples and practices referring to the research results and/or the collaboration itself)
