Funding Strategies & Sources for International Research Cooperation
International, US & Private Donors • European Funding Sources • Profit from Successful Partnerships & Alumni Networks
Researchers in Europe and beyond face mutual challenges. In times of declining national public funding for higher education and research institutions, it becomes increasingly important to identify and to seize all sources of revenue. Missing out on research and development cooperation causes a high negative impact on the acquisition of resources and reputation. In addition, providing the adequate conditions for research – from infrastructure to access to databases – becomes increasingly expensive and is therefore more difficult to uphold for each individual institution. Finally, research fields are becoming more specialised and more complex. Therefore, no university or research institute can prosper without relying on the knowledge, the expertise and the specialisation of others. Isolated, institutions from Europe, Africa and Asia face the danger to sink into insignificance.
Building intercontinental science networks helps organisations to use their special knowledge and capacities for the benefit of all partners. Through cooperation it becomes possible to share expertise as well as expensive research infrastructures and/or laboratories as well as to access new funding possibilities. These research cooperations are the key to unlock funding possibilities by the European Union as well as funding possibilities offered by other international programmes and multilateral institutions. Therefore, learn on the one hand how to be prepared for the EU-funding systems and on the other hand, how to maximize internationalisation and to use sources beyond H2020. Blend your funding sources and benefit from international, U.S. and public as well as private foundations for research cooperation. Find out how to develop a promising fundraising strategy and how to measure your success. Different funding sources offer the escape from national and continental isolation as well as the possibility to become and remain a relevant research institution in an increasingly globalised world. Old-established universities and research institutions and rising organisations in the field of research on all continents can only benefit from the exchange of capacities, knowledge and joint funding. Learn how to cross the boarders between continents and discover new possibilities for research cooperation and funding.
