In recent years there has been an increased focus on research programmes that require research collaborations with institutions in low and middle income countries. A key aim of such programmes is to build research capacity in developing country based research partners, to better equip countries to define problems, set objectives and bring solutions to key national problems. The Capacity Research Unit at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine specialises in the science of capacity strengthening and has supported several such capacity strengthening focused research programmes. From these, the CRU and has drawn lessons and good practice to share with researchers involved in or embarking on international collaborations that are designed to strengthen the research capacity of partner institutions in low and middle income countries. This presentation covers lessons and good practice at each stage of such research programmes: applying for research funds; starting up a new research programme; and embedding research capacity practices within partner institutions.
