Managing International Project Teams: a Focus on Emerging and Developing Countries
Opportunities for research and teaching funding with partners located in emerging or developing countries (e.g. SEED Money calls with MENA, Asia, Latin America) is becoming increasingly available to HES-SO scholars. Although work in multicultural teams is common for Swiss scholars, managing international project teams involving partners from culturally and institutionally distant countries is often not an easy task.
This workshop was developed based on the workshop facilitators’ concrete research expertise on collaboration in international teams and their experience in leading projects involving partners from emerging and developing countries.
This workshop aims to develop your capacity to effectively develop and manage international projects across the following three stages: network development, partnership engagement and collaborative research project. Among the specific issues that will be addressed are tackling conflicts related to intercultural communication and tips on how to avoid them in their early stage.
Particularly, in this workshop you will develop:
You will work on concrete cases of academic project development and management in various cultural contexts such as MENA, Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America. You will develop your competencies by engaging in both individual exercises and discussions with peers, strengthened by facilitators’ insights and experience from their own research projects on international management issues.
