internationalization of research
Internationalization of Research
  • In a globalized world, internationalization is key for universities to successfully carry out their mission
  • Hence for research intensive universities, internationalization of research is essential
internationalization of research1
Internationalization of Research

WHY ?

  • Global issues require global solutions:
    • World economy
    • Climate change
    • Epidemics
    • Poverty
    • Security and peace, etc.
  • Regional input on these issues required as well as piecing collaboratively local elements of global questions
internationalization of research2
Internationalization of Research

WHY ?

  • Knowledge knows no boundary : Teaming up the best researchers worldwide towards biggest impact
  • Share expensive platforms
internationalization of research3
Internationalization of Research

WHY ?

  • Enrich approach from diversity
  • North/South partnerships
  • « Knowledge Diplomacy »
    • International mobility of researchers
    • Fostering international entrepreneurship and ventures
  • Insert research students in international networks
internationalization of research4
Internationalization of Research

Rapid growth:

  • OECD: since 1985, co-authored scientific articles have tripled
  • 25% of articles are international
  • In Canada, 40% are international
  • In Canada, publications with emerging countries have doubled
  • Accelerated internationalization of industrial R&D

Fostering Internationalization of Research

Population and Health in Africa Program:

  • Solidarity contracts with the universities of Burkina Faso*:
    • to reinforce the human capacity of the sub-Saharan region through the development of a professional MSc program in population and health in Ouagadougou, a series of training seminars for current leaders and specialists in the region, and 17 PhD fellowships for Africans in population and health at Université de Montréal;
    • to create a regional population and health leadership center at Ouagadougou, by reinforcing the training and research capacities of ISSP (Institut Supérieur des Sciences de la Population).

* Project supported by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

3. International Issues and Collaborations:

  • Institutes on global issues, ex. Biodiversity Research Institute
  • Collaboration with institutes of international organizations, ex. UNESCO Social Statistics Institute
  • Collaboration within networks, ex. International Forum of Public Universities (IFPU)
slide21

Fostering Internationalization of Research

International Forum of Public Universities

  • Inaugurated October 11, 2007
  • 21 institutions from 20 countries, 2 associated members, 4 continents represented
  • Diverse but small enough
  • Promote the mission of public universities in an era of globalization as represented by universities from diverse regions, diverse cultures and languages
  • Brings together public universities that are recognized in their country for the importance they give to research and their contribution to the development of society
  • Headquarters at the Université de Montréal
slide22

Fostering Internationalization of Research

International Forum of Public Universities

  • Two-pronged approach to support the internalization of research:
    • Bottom-up: from individual research priorities within network to common initiatives, using above approaches
    • Top-down: identifying easy-entry research areas for all universities within network, that capitalizes on diversity as a fundamental feature

Conclusion

Concrete steps to develop our international links:

  • Identify mutual research priorities, ex. presence of research institutes in similar areas
  • Initiate collaboration (see models)
  • Involve graduate students as vectors of collaboration
  • Use the available funding and advocate for more
