Franco-British academic partnerships: The next chapter

Fraser, M., & Lane, P. (Eds.). Franco-British academic partnerships: The next chapter. Liverpool University Press, Liverpool, 2011. ISBN: 978-1-8463-1664-7. Pages: 241.

This publication is a collection of essays exploring collaborations between universities in France and in the United Kingdom. The French-British academic cooperation links are analysed from the perspectives of teaching and training, and research, as well as in a broader context involving internationalisation of higher education; academic mobility; the role of communication and alumni networks; the relationship of university, research and business; and other issues. This book provides a wealth of examples that illustrate successful collaborations in different thematic areas and organisational forms of cooperation varying from double degree programmes to cross-sector strategic partnerships. A comprehensive snapshot on intensifying bilateral cooperation in the higher education sector, this book presents an opportunity to share experience and best practice from France and the United Kingdom, find new approaches to the existing constraints to cooperation and identify some new areas for collaboration.
