Bridges Not Borders: Benefits of Building Across Boundaries

Scientists encounter multiple barriers across ethic, cultural, and geographic boundaries when trying to develop effective collaborations. These may include language, cultural differences, and bureaucracy. Despite these roadblocks, many scientists are effective at transgressing these barriers. The speakers in this symposium each bring their unique perspectives on collaborating across international, institutional, political, and cultural borders. Speakers will provide recommendations for scientists on overcoming similar challenges.
