The Research Office would like to invite you to a talk by Dr Richard Masterman, Director of Research and Graduate Services at The University of Nottingham, UK, entitled 'The contribution of international research collaboration to research capability and reputation'.
About the talk
Richard will talk about the global objectives of the University for its research activities, and how The University of Nottingham Ningbo China can contribute to these and develop its research profile through collaborative activities more broadly. He will show how research collaboration can benefit an institution's research capability and reputation, and discuss examples of the issues he has faced in developing international research projects which involved funding from multiple institutions in different countries, and cross-campus collaboration.
Chang Le, International Business Development Manager in Richard's team, will talk about her experience in supporting individuals to set up collaborations in China, and the issues to consider when trying to secure funding.
