Implementing co-operative international, multidisciplinary RD&I can present some challenges. Partners from different professional, national, cultural and organisational backgrounds need to work together to achieve the RD&I objectives. We can draw on nearly 20 years of experience managing the administrative, technical and people aspects connected with RD&I projects.
