Research Collaboration

Emirates Scholar offers participation of researchers from a variety of backgrounds, including those with varying levels of experience and money, as well as In essence, the foundation of their working relationship is their shared comprehension, and they strive to do research that is both engaging and valuable to one another. They may be separated into a variety of distinct categories.

Types of Research Collaboration

1. Collaboration within the institution

  • In this type, members of two research groups in different departments of the same institution work together on a project.
  • No external funding is involved to carry out the research.
  • The work is divided reasonably equally between the two groups.
  • All members will meet together regularly to review their progress and plan for the publication of their results.
  • Communication can take place with collaborators in close proximity to each other (e.g. face-to-face).

2. Research collaboration with a private company

  • In this type, a researcher from a private company works with the research group of an academic faculty member for several months.
  • During this time the non-academic researcher pursues his own project while learning about current techniques and research questions from the graduate students in the group.

3. Collaboration with other institution

  • In this type of collaboration, a researcher(Senior researcher) who receives federal funding will invite and collaborate with other researchers(Junior researchers) from other institutions.
  • This basically happens to complete a large data collection.
  • Communication can take place with collaborators through E-mail or Telephone.

4. Research collaboration with other institution in person

  • In this type, a researcher travels to another institution for a particular period of time to learn some new techniques or collecting data.
  • Each time a researcher visits the institution he/she stays for 2-3 weeks and participates in the research of the other research group.
  • Communication can take place with collaborators in close proximity to each other (e.g. face-to-face)

5. International Research collaboration

  • In this type, in order to gain a more global perspective of the research problem, the collaboration among researchers will be established from different countries and different institutions.
  • All research groups independently apply for their own funding.
  • The collaborators agree that all data collected regarding the question they are studying will be made available to the entire collaboratives.
  • Communication can take place with collaborators through E-mail or Telephone.
