Collaboration Laboratory Frequently Asked Questions

The funding cycle for the 2019-2020 Collaboration Laboratory is closed. Stay tuned or follow us @GHSTAR_Project on Twitter for updates!

WHAT IS THE COLLABORATION LABORATORY?
The Collaboration Laboratory is STAR’s facilitated approach to test, refine, and document what works and what does not in creating and sustaining academic partnerships. Through the Collaboration Laboratory, paired academic institutions will spend one year working toward a concrete goal or objective. Simultaneously, STAR staff will document their successes, challenges and lessons learned for internal and external learning.

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THE COLLABORATION LABORATORY?
The aim of the Collaboration Laboratory is to better understand the components that contribute to a strong, equitable partnership.

Additional goals include:

  • Building a diverse network of stronger academic partnerships to better support global health programming
  • Facilitating dialogue among academic institutions
  • Reframing what a mutually benefiting, respectful partnership looks like between US and LMIC academic institutions
