Transnational Research Collaboration. A Report Submitted by the Task Force on Transnational Collaborative Research to the Government/Academic Interface Committee, International Education Project, American Council on Education. Occasional Paper No. 2.
Mangone, Gerard J.; And Others
A descriptive overview of international, cooperative research efforts is provided. Transnational collaborative research consists of those activities that bring scholars of different countries together to work on the same or common research problems that cannot be addressed as effectively by an individual nation. This report offers a sampling of programs and projects in progress during 1973 and 1974. Topic areas under examination include agriculture, development, atomic energy, commerce, environment, health, education, space, and the humanities. Six major advantages and six limitations to current transnational collaborative research are listed. To improve further research it is recommended that all interested public and private agencies be informed of the potential values of this research; flexibility be provided in programs and budgets to encourage sound proposals; and case studies of allegedly successful and unsuccessful projects be accumulated, analyzed, and shared with the relevant research community.
