International collaboration means working together on projects that you’re not able to do alone, and learning from each other, across the borders of countries as well as subject fields. This results in:
- insight into how teaching and research are organized in other countries
- insight into how social security and healthcare systems differ from each other
- insight in scientific evidence regarding other countries
