Scientific collaborations between the Global North and South range from technical assistance to research. Generally, these collaborations are thought to be good, however they sometimes face challenges such as dominance by those based in the North. There appears to be little systematic research that demonstrates an understanding of the process of scientific collaboration. In this presentation, the researcher will share findings of a study that seeks to understand the successes and challenges in a scientific collaboration based in the US and Benin.
