Resilience versus risk when collaborating with international partners
The Global Challenge Research Fund has resulted in a substantial increase in the number of international collaborations and the number of UK research organisations that are leading international collaborative projects. The vast majority of the overseas partners are in Lower or Middle Income Countries (LMICs) and frequently in countries which have a high rate of corruption and a range of other financial and reputational risk factors. Both presenters have a large amount of experience working with both their own organisations and across the UK research organisation community to develop and enhance due diligence processes. This has been a steep learning curve for all involved and there is now considerable learning to be shared.
The workshop is aimed at sharing experiences, how to cope with issues when they materialise and to provide examples of good practice, especially for those organisations that are new to international collaborations. We will also explore the question of organisational risk appetite in this area to help organisations define the level of risk they are prepared to accept, understand when that level is risk is breached and consider examples of how risks can be mitigated.
