International Impact through Collaborations.
 
One key characteristic of research that has an international impact is international collaboration.

For several years we have tried to develop the research conducted in CHILD towards collaborating with reseachers and teachers in other countries having the same interests in research as we have. International collaboration generates research output. Some of these collaborations are long standing and involve several persons and several kinds of collaborations.
Last year, 2015, more than 20 of the articles authored by persons in CHILD have international co-authors.
International collaboration can take many forms such as collaborating in research projects (applying for money, doing data collection and doing data analysis), co-authoring of research articles, sharing supervision of doctoral students and master students, arranging special topic research centers and seminars, collaborative presentations in conferences and exchange of students and researchers. CHILD as a group has been involved in all these kinds of activities whereof some examples can be seen here.
