The Role of Guidelines for Sustainable and Equitable partnerships in North-South collaboration


12:00 - 14:00

Organiser: Fabian Käser & Elisabeth Schubiger (Swiss Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries KFPE) Input: Norah Kiereri (Geneva Graduate Institute)

KFPE Guide for Transboundary Research Partnerships

The KFPE has developed a guide for transboundary research partnerships to support researchers who are engaged in such partnerships and funders who support such partnerships. Researches, funders and practitioners from Switzerland and LMICs have jointly developed this guide. After a decade of use, the KFPE aims to revise this guide.

During the workshop, we will discuss generally how guidelines contribute to sustainable and equitable North-South research partnerships, which issues such guidelines schould address and how the guide for transboundary research partnerships could be improved. We look forward to a critical interactive discussion and to learn from your experiences in North-South collaboration. A detailed knowledge of the guide for transboundary research partnerships is not mandatory for the participation.
