The COHRED Research Fairness Initiative Conference
The Council on Health Research for Development (COHRED) designed the Research Fairness Initiative (RFI) as a collaboration framework that encourages fair opportunities, fair processes, and fair distribution of the benefits of joint research.
It has been endorsed by senior officials from research and development organisations all over the world.
Early adopters from RFI pilot countries will present their experiences of RFI at institutional level and in their international research cooperation activities.
- Inform a critical mass of African and European stakeholders about how the RFI can strengthen bi-regional health research cooperation.
- Increase intra-EU coordination of and support for bi-regional health research cooperation.
- Develop the RFI as a tool to support diverse programmes to more efficiently impact on joint health research priorities.
- Improve the RFI as sustainable collaboration platform to support bi-regional health research cooperation on joint priorities.
