HRA spotlight – Intercultural Awareness for International Collaboration
Effective collaboration with scientists from diverse and versatile cultural backgrounds, disciplines and mindsets is not an easy task but a challenging one. Various understandings and perspectives on commitments provide special challenges for research, teaching and supervision in international groups. At the same time collaboration with professionals having different educational backgrounds makes the gap of understanding even bigger. The special circumstances of the pandemic and its distance communication brings additional impact in cross-cultural communication and collaboration.
This HRA spotlight provides insights, tips, and experience exchange about intercultural communication in research, supervision, and international collaboration.
- Challenges of research, teaching and (online) supervision in scientific cross-cultural work environments
- Cross-cultural communication – how to bring your message across in low and high context
- Culturally reflective skills– intercultural role awareness and experience exchange
