In this webinar, Jude Fransman and Kate Newman (co-convenors of the Rethinking Research Collaborative) will discuss their work on understanding and improving trans-national/sectoral/disciplinary research collaboration to address the urgent social and environmental challenges facing the world today.
Charting the shift from effectiveness to equity and onwards to an ecological agenda for research collaboration, they will explore the politics of research from ODA-funding and participation in research governance to design, implementation, communication, adaptation and use of research and consider the implications for rethinking research ethics, impact and capacity.
