Cooperation and Competition in Global Academic Science

Principal Investigator:
Creso Sá (OISE, University of Toronto)
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC)
Project description:
There is a great deal of differentiation within national science policy making that leads to quite different forms and degrees of engagement in international research collaboration. This differentiation leads to two research questions that underpin this study: How and why does international collaboration in academic science become supported politically? How do national science policy institutions influence policies focused on international collaboration?
