The workshop “How to establish fair and equitable global research partnerships” was given by Dr Fabian Käser (Head of Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries, KFPE) and Jonas Karlström (Product Innovation Health Specialist, UNICEF). Early career researchers involved in BRCCH-funded projects learnt about the key principles of cross-border research partnerships, analysed their application through a real-life case and discussed how to implement effective collaborations for their own research. The workshop was followed by an apero where the participants and speakers could interact in a casual atmosphere.
