Panel Organized by: UK Research and Innovation

As stated in Canada’s 2017 Naylor report, “research is a global enterprise”. International collaboration not only allows the best to work with best, but also access to unique environments and facilities, and permits research to be conducted at scale. This panel will address the issue of how funders contribute to the internationalisation efforts of their national research systems, from the unique perspective of speakers who have spent time based in a partner country in order to support their agency’s global engagement. The panel will illustrate their points with case studies and share information on collaborative opportunities for the research community.
