International collaborations constitute now a common way of doing science. In the last decades science has become a truly international endeavor as can be evidenced by the large number of papers published by international research teams. International collaborations bring together the best ideas and minds across the world, and collaborations permit the convergence of varied expertise for answering some research question. International collaboration brings also the possibility of networking, attracting international grants, recognizing and achieving higher visibility, etc. however it also has many challenges. In this workshop organized by Women in Cognitive Science, an international panel of senior and junior researchers will discuss the opportunities brought about by international collaborations, but also the challenges associated with them. In different presentations, panelists will focus on different aspects of collaborations as they approach the topic from different career standpoints. Challenges and rewards regarding networking, fund raising or finding appropriate topics for collaboration will be discussed. Panel presentations will be followed by open discussion with the audience. Funding opportunities by international collaborations and networks will also be discussed.
After the panel, researchers with extensive international collaborations will be identified and possibilities for individual discussions and networking will be provided for during the reception.
