Finding a Perfect Research Collaborator: How to Build a Robust Research Network

Session Agenda

Research collaboration is the key to build and maintain a successful research career in today’s globalized world. The Royal Society of Medicine in collaboration with Karger Publishers and Enago conducted an insightful webinar to train researchers for initiating long-standing and fruitful collaborations.

Interdisciplinary, inter-organizational, and international collaborations facilitate research advancement by bringing together a unique mix of talents, resources, cultures, and scientific knowledge. However, most young researchers find it immensely challenging to establish good collaborations. Researchers need to find compatible collaborators, maintain the existing collaborations, and recognize opportunities to work with them. It also helped researchers understand the significance and benefits of research collaboration and increase their awareness of the following:

  • Introduction to research collaboration and its different models
  • How to identify the right research collaborators and initiate a collaboration?
  • How should collaboration be arranged?
  • How are researchers’ contributions managed in academic collaboration?
  • Tools for collaboration

Who should attend this session?

  • Early-stage researchers
  • Medical researchers
  • Health professionals
  • Established researchers
