|dc.description.abstract||Society?s most pressing challenges are increasingly global in scale, creating the need for partnerships unconstrained by disciplinary, institutional, or national boundaries. Partnerships across countries, in particular, can gather critical intellectual and material resources to fill institutional gaps and offer complementary strengths.
In this context, Betty Rambur is exploring research partnerships that cross national boundaries to determine how to most effectively develop, nourish, and sustain them. She will share preliminary findings from her study, which examines collaborations from the perspective of individuals at different ranks, in several nations, and in an array of institutional types. She will illustrate the languages necessary for ongoing collaboration and present an emerging model for participants to review and critique.||en
