Strategies for bilateral research cooperation: French-German experience
France and Germany are important trading and policy partners but also have intense relationships on research cooperation in diverse areas. German and French research organisations have accumulated a large repository of knowledge and experience in bilateral research cooperation during the past few years and decades. This book analyses a variety of French-German research cooperations ranging from basic to applied research and from project cooperation to a joint French-German institute. Using a comparative approach, the analyses carried out in the book aim to identify the specific experiences gained from selected examples of French-German research cooperations in a systematic manner. The authors show learning effects from French-German research cooperations that may support future binational as well as international activities.
