June 2 and 3, 2021 are the dates for “Celebrating International Research and Education Partnerships (CIREP),” a workshop to take place virtually both days from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDT.
The workshop will focus on the importance of international collaboration in the areas of research and education and will bring together leaders from government, industry, and academia to discuss how to facilitate international partnerships.
The 20th century featured the shift from an industrial age to an information age, which accelerated the opportunities for international research and education partnerships. Global connectivity is no longer an issue and, in this past year, the ability to interact with audiences across a wide range of geographies using multimedia tools has grown tremendously. This workshop is being organized to celebrate international relationships, to share learning and outcomes, to identify remaining barriers, and to develop strategies to address them.
Panel discussion topics include:
Significance of international collaborative research activities
Significance of international collaboration in education, student training and work force development
Challenges in global collaboration and strategies to promote international partnerships
Consistency in federal guidelines and policies across international boundaries
