Work better with collaborators and partners
Support interdisciplinary, industry and international collaboration
Studies have shown that increased international collaboration produces higher quality research (Royal Society, 2011). As an institution you want to help your faculty be more efficient at finding collaborators and funding opportunities. You need platforms to enable collaboration and help pinpoint the right types of researchers based on their expertise and track records, and you are increasingly looking to partner with industry on basic and applied research projects.
Become better at finding first-rate collaborators and have the right network and tools to support a seamless research venture.
