Congratulations to Dr. Paar-Jakli on the Collaborative Research Incentive AwardPosted Jul. 1, 2013
Dr. Gabriella Paar-Jakli, Assistant Professor, has been awarded the Collaborative Research Incentive Award for her research on Transatlantic Science and Technology Networks (with Ruoming Jin, Department of Computer Science).
As science, technology, and innovation play a fundamental role in economic growth and human development, they become increasingly critical to resolving global issues. As a result, science and technology policy becomes an integral element of the foreign policy process. This project aims to provide new insights into transatlantic relations in science and technology policy. This project aims to provide empirical evidence, hence contribute to the understanding of the complex nature of transatlantic communication and cooperation from a network perspective by connecting and synthesizing ideas developed within the various theories and disciplines. Thereby this project can contribute to filling in a still existing gap between the network perspective and the study of international relations.
