Policy brief

This policy briefing aims to present key findings from a recently completed review of internal research development processes and approaches to partnerships building at SOAS. Like other universities, SOAS successfully received GCRF QR funding in order to implement its GCRF Strategy, identifying specific outcomes for the period 2018-2020.

The current research project was conducted in order to facilitate the implementation of these objectives. It aimed to investigate more systematically barriers related to finance, contracts and compliance in international collaborative research faced in-house and in partner countries, understand current approaches to partnerships building and identify possible improvements and good practices.
