Global partnerships with multinational teams are increasingly referenced as a means to approach the world’s most pressing problems. This interactive session details an empirically derived conceptual framework that describes seven distinct types of interinstitutional, multinational research partnerships along a range of increasing faculty risk, decreasing stability, increasing human factors with compounding interaction costs, and increasing time to research outputs. Participants will critique the framework and discuss applications and implications in reference to their fields and institutions.

The PowerPoint presentation will be available on the series Web site.  Please ensure that you have access to these slides locally. The talk will also be broadcast live via Web cast and this link can also be accessed via the Web site.

The Ideas & Universities virtual seminar series is co-sponsored by the Worldwide Universities Network, UW-Madison’s WISCAPE, and Bristol University’s Institute for Advanced Studies.
