Analyzing and evaluating the transboundary collaboration within ISCB phase IV (2013-2017) and drawing lessons for future research and development projects.


In the frame of the Indo-Swiss Collaboration in Biotechnology (ISCB) Indian and Swiss biotechnologists and, since 2013, socioeconomists jointly do research and product development for sustainable agriculture in India. This study analyses and evaluates the transboundary research collaboration (mainly between countries and disciplines) within ISCB since 2013 by means of an online survey, key informant interviews and workshops with all researchers involved in the programme.
