INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH COLLABORATIONS                                                                                                       

GUIRR’s International Research Collaborations Working Group, or “I-Group”, is planning a workshop to be held in the fall of 2017.  The workshop will focus on the role of data and ethics in the context of international research agreements, and follows on previous I-Group workshops on (1) core elements of international research agreements, and (2) culture in international research agreements.  Also informing the discussion will be foundational meetings held by GUIRR on Big Data and Smart Cities, among others.

Project Co-Chairs:  Dr. Barbara Mittleman and Dr. Arturo Pizano

As of September 2016, I-Group members convene bimonthly by teleconference. If you would like to join the ad hoc planning committee, please send a note to guirr@nas.edu



Culture Matters Report CoverCulture Matters: International Research Collaboration in a Changing World--Summary of a Workshop 
In an increasingly interconnected world, science and technology research is more often transecting international boundaries and involving researchers from multiple nations.  This paradigm provides both new opportunities and new challenges.  The GUIRR International Research Collaborations Working Group (known as the I-Group) has set out to explore ways to advance and improve international research collaborations. 

In an increasingly interconnected world, science and technology research often transects international boundaries and involves researchers from multiple nations. This paradigm provides both new opportunities and new challenges. As science and technology capabilities grow around the world, United States-based organizations are finding that international collaborations and partnerships provide unique opportunities to enhance research and training. At the same time, enhancing international collaboration requires recognition of differences in culture, legitimate national security needs, and critical needs in education and training.

Examining Core Elements of International Research Collaboration
The globalization of science, engineering, and medical research is proceeding rapidly. The globalization of research has important implications for the U.S. research enterprise, for the U.S. government agencies, academic institutions, and companies that support and perform research, and for the world at large. As science and technology capabilities grow around the world, U.S.-based organizations are finding that international collaborations and partnerships provide unique opportunities to enhance research and training. At the same time, significant obstacles exist to smooth collaboration across national borders. Enhancing international collaboration requires recognition of differences in culture, legitimate national security needs, and critical needs in education and training.

The goal for the workshop and the summary, Examining Core Elements of International Research Collaboration, is to serve as an information resource for participants and others interested in international research collaborations. It will also aid I-Group in setting its future goals and priorities.
