Abstract

The decline in research and scientific production of African universities on a global level is motivated by different factors including poor research infrastructure, poorly-equipped libraries, limited access to new technologies, lack of financing for research, lack of access to good and well equipped labs and lack of funds to publish research in journals and attend conferences to present research. These factors generate accumulative effects and problems in the institutions and for the researchers. The  development  of  innovative practices, initiatives and strategies on an international level for PhD and research studies can have a positive  impact  on  the  quality  of  training  and  developed  research.  Academic and research collaboration is a very valuable tool that not only accelerates the progress but also enhances the quality of the work and extends the repertoire of the partners. One of  the  priority objectives  of ResearchLink International is to  establish  a  permanent  forum  of  cooperation, dialogue, study and  exchanges  between  researchers from developing countries and researchers, universities and companies in developed countries. Thus, ResearchLink has developed collaboration platforms & initiatives that will be beneficial to, not only researchers from the developing world but to the whole world as well. The American Council on Science & Education has been very supportive in providing a platform during the conferences for ResearchLink to create awareness about research challenges in developing countries. Some of our initiatives have been shared on previous CSCE (WorldComp) & CSCI conferences, and the responses and feedbacks have been very supportive, positive and encouraging.
