Release of Workshop Summary: Building Infrastructure for International Collaborations in Social and Behavioral Research
In September 2013, the USNC/IUPsyS convened a workshop to address ways of overcoming challenges to effective international collaborative research in the social and behavioral sciences and education. This workshop was a follow-up to a 2006 workshop on the benefits of and obstacles to international collaborations. Participants at the 2013 workshop discussed ways that universities and other organizations can address common challenges. These include strengthening infrastructure to support international collaboration, fostering relationships with potential collaborators, dealing with cross-cultural dissemination and authorship, developing strategies for anticipating and resolving conflicts, the advantages and challenges of new technologies, and building cultural competence. Judith Torney-Purta and Oscar Barbarin co-chaired the workshop. The workshop was held with support from the Spencer Foundation.
