University of Windsor Report on Cross-border Collaboration
February 2011
"International collaboration is an issue that appears to be growing at a faster rate than governments can handle. Itis for this reason, that it becomes all the more important to address the barriers to collaboration as well as some of the best practices of existing collaborations. Accordingly, the purpose of this report is to highlight the importance of cross-border collaboration as it pertains to economic, societal, and regional development. There is a need to closely examine cross border relationships, what their benefits are, and what some of the barriers that, if eliminated, would more easily allow cross border initiatives to take place. Numerous reports and studies have shown the advantage a geographical region can acquire if they partake in cross-border collaboration. This report was written to show the competitive advantage that can be gained by academic institutions, industry and municipalities once a cross border collaborative relationship is formed. Recommendations are targeted to the University of Windsor, and to other Canadian universities and public policy makers."
