Research Collaboration and Engagement:
Case Studies and Good Practices
Report by Dr Andrew Deuchar, Postdoctoral Researcher and Dr Brigid Freeman, Senior Researcher (Education) and Academic Fellow, Australia India Institute
Research collaborations across national boundaries can help promote strong bilateral ties and enable scholars to advance their research agendas and produce knowledge. Research collaborations can take several forms, ranging from formalised partnerships between institutions, to those built on informal ties between colleagues.
This report presents case studies of 21 scholars who are conducting research and engagement activities relevant to India and the Australia-India relationship. It has two aims. First, it aims to identify good research practice among Australian based scholars who work on and in India and those who are involved in productive collaborations between the two countries. Second, it generates insights into how to better support scholars working on India and how to stimulate and sustain productive research collaborations.
