As UK Universities increasingly develop their physical and virtual presence overseas, the need for alignment of research and internationalisation strategies becomes ever more apparent. Internationalisation though, is often driven, or heavily influenced, by undergraduate and postgraduate student recruitment. Target territories for such recruitment may not always be the most obvious ones for developing institutional research links. This session looks at the potential tensions between the drivers for internationalisation of teaching and those for research, with particular reference to the Coventry University experience, where both internationalisation and research growth are key strategic priorities. It discusses both the challenges and opportunities associated with the alignment of international and research agendas, particularly from a modern University viewpoint, and offers pointers on how research support staff can become integral to helping shape the priorities for the internationalisation of research at their institution. No prior knowledge is assumed for participants, though those with relevant experience will be invited to share their observations and reflections.
