International collaboration is seen as central to the success of many research projects and the career and professional development of the researchers involved. International research partnerships can result in high quality research outputs and often offers the opportunity to develop early career researchers (ECRs) across borders while providing them with invaluable exposure to international collaborative networks.
This session will highlight some of the approaches universities, funders and professional development organisations around the Commonwealth are taking to develop ECRs in the vital knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to succeed in competitive international research environments - such as sourcing funding, writing compelling applications, and choosing the right partners. Panellists will provide a snapshot of their approaches and experiences before a discussion on the shared challenges and opportunities to enhance researcher development through partnership working.
