Developing International and National Research Networks
Patrick Fuery, Ph.D., Wilkinson College of the Humanities and Social Sciences, Dean
In many ways how we connect our research to a national and international network is one of the key measures to how we are doing. When we create these networks we build on what has become one of the significant issues of research – its international and global perspective. Rather than a presentation, this session would work best if people could come to discuss how they have been involved in such networking so we can share perspectives and ideas.
