The underlying drivers of International Research Cooperation
Book chapter, 2014
The HEIP-Link project is about developing the conditions and mechanisms for international research and development cooperation on a global level. This chapter aims at presenting and discussing some issues and potential areas to be considered in such international cooperation, in order for universities to both benefit from the research cooperation and participate in innovation processes. The chapter discusses the following essential questions related to international research cooperation:
1) What do we ultimately want to create from our university’s knowledge assets, e.g. from research results, experience?
2) How can international collaboration contribute to building the university knowledge assets?
3) If we build new knowledge assets in university collaboration - who will benefit from these new assets?
