Academic research has become more international nowadays.
Whether it is to develop new ideas, tap into new sources of funding,
or to gain access to specialized technology and equipment, scholars
are more positive to carry out research together with colleagues
around the world. These international research projects can benefit
researchers for greater academic influence and a broader community.
However, many young researchers meet great difficulties in starting
international research projects.
This panel aims to share the “tricks” about how to start
international research projects. Panelists of different research
background are invited to share their own experiences, including
scholars who took PhD Degree overseas and come back to his/her own
country, who took PhD Degree overseas and is working in that country,
and who have rich experiences and are actively conducting
international collaboration for a long period of time. Attendees will
get an overview of different kinds of international research projects
and methods about how to start their own ones
