Increasing fairness and impact of research partnerships


Rue de Varembé 17
1211 Geneva 20

Purpose of this session is to go beyond calls that ‘research partnerships between high income countries/institutions and low & middle income countries/institutions should be ‘fair’ and ‘equitable’.

Increasing fairness

This session presents (the only) two pragmatic tools encouraging the creation and maintenance of responsible and fair research partnerships – and gives voice to two key people representing an international organization and an African country, respectively, who pioneered the use of the RFI.

The synergy between the RFI and the KFPE Guidelines are clear: in the process of completing the RFI Report, institutions will become aware of the KFPE Guidelines (and others) – and are encouraged to adhere to one or more of these to guide institutional conduct. In this sense, the RFI is both a ‘due diligence instrument’ and a ‘compliance tool’ promoting awareness and implementation of existing legislations, policies, guidelines and practices aimed at optimizing research partnerships.
