The road to productive strategic partnerships can be a rocky one. Visions and ambitions often collide with institutional realities, and partnerships can get stuck in the early stages of implementation. This session will present tools and practices for developing and managing successful strategic partnerships beyond the mere signing of memoranda of understanding (MoU). You’ll also have the chance to develop and discuss ideas for the implementation of your own strategic international partnership.
