Warwick Boston Partnership

The Boston Warwick Partnership was established in 2008, with the goal of maximising the productivity and impact of both institutions through research collaborations in new and emerging disciplines. Since 2008 collaborations have broadened across a range of disciplines and now encompass all four Warwick faculties; Science, Medicine, Social Science and Arts & Humanities. The latest opportunity, resulting from this partnership, is the launch of the Boston-Warwick Strategic Funding Initiative 2010 to support joint research and educational collaborations between BU and Warwick. Professor Nigel Thrift, the Vice-Chancellor at Warwick, believes that the two universities can together achieve results that neither institution could deliver alone. "What this relationship is about," he remarked, "is deep, lasting and meaningful collaboration across the Atlantic that allows each of our universities to leverage on the strengths of the other to achieve even greater impact from its research endeavours." Warwick Boston Partnership Podcasts are a series of recordings that the digital team are capturing when academics from Boston University are visiting the Warwick campus as part of a organised partnership trip or as IAS visiting fellows. So far the recordings have covered collaborations within the politics, international studies and medicine fields with many more to follow in the future. As well as some lectures presented on campus the podcasts include conversations between academics from both universities highlighting the ways in which the partnership benefits joint research and future opportunities to work together.
