Research collaborations

Research collaborations are becoming increasingly common. Several research grants and career advancement opportunities are directly linked to research collaboration.

Collaborations in research come in many forms, including co-authorship, research network building, joint research, and research partnerships. Early career researchers, in particular, stand to gain a lot from collaborations, either by getting involved in existing research groups, or by looking for collaborators whose skills are complementary to theirs. In these modules, you will learn how (and why) to collaborate with industry, how international collaborations work, and how to create and sustain research collaborations over time.
