Researchers Associations beyond borders: how many computations to design an interactive constellation?
In the rapidly evolving global research enterprise, new scientific and societal challenges require multidisciplinary approaches and the involvement of a higher and diverse number of stakeholders. Accordingly, researchers are increasingly required to work across disciplines, sectors and institutions at regional, national and international levels.
Researchers associations are an invaluable resource to support researchers along their career development and to foster researchers communities.
How many combinations could be imagined to bring together researchers associations and to foster researcher's networking beyond national and discipline borders?
The session aims at collecting input as a basis for a strategy on how to systematise the collaboration between important actors in the field of research career development. Read more [...]

Heightened multi-lateral collaboration fever as Brexit mitigating strategy
Too much is at stakes in European science for people managing research—particularly in the UK—to leave it up to politicians to determine their future. Brexit or no Brexit, there are signs that further integration of the UK scientific activities into the European research fabric is underway. Indeed, universities across the UK are establishing new partnership deals in education and research with European and Commonwealth universities. Whether this move will allow UK research institutions to remain attractive to European collaborators remains to be seen. Read more [...]
Doing acrobatics in my own virtual world
A few days ago, I watched this video in my Facebook where a collection of everyday people is shown walking in the street with a guide to direct them because they were in great danger, compulsively focused to the screen of their smartphones.
Innovation: collaboration creed rather than mobility mantra
When it comes to mobility, Central and Eastern European scientists are among the champions. This has often resulted in an entire generational gap in their country’s scientific community. Now, some of the brainiest Eastern European scientists are doing research in the most dynamic research hubs in Western Europe, the US and Asia. And their home countries are left to pick up the pieces. Read more [...]

A new model for open innovation: the Structural Genomics Consortium
Open innovation is often suggested as a solution to enhance productivity in under-performing areas of research. Now, the strengths and weaknesses of a new open innovation model in drug discovery have been evaluated. Our evaluation focuses on the model adopted by the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), a public-private, open access, not-for-profit organisation created in 2004. Read more [...]
