We are pleased to showcase recent research in this open source e-book from a global study of institutional arrangements for the facilitation and support of research partnerships between Civil Society Organizations (CSO) and Higher Education Institutions (HEI). This book outlines a number of important trends, challenges and approaches associated with how research partnerships are initiated, supported, and evaluated through a comparative study of different types of institutional arrangements. This includes a detailed overview of a global survey administered in over ﬁfty countries and four languages, and twelve country case studies demonstrating strong institutional and policy support for Community University Research Partnerships (CURP).
With over 25 contributing authors from all over the world, this is the first book of its kind to provide a rich overview of the landscape of partnership research addressing societies most pressing issues. Inspiring institutional transformation, this roadmap to change provides illustrative country case studies that are pioneering innovation in all sectors.
Support for this project is from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada and numerous project partners and contributing authors. Please share widely with colleagues and friends.
