Since its launch at the end of 2021, RIC-KI has helped to forge new connections for innovative research projects between scientists across the world.
RIC-KI, designed to inspire researchers to think creatively about developing their best ideas together for mutual benefit and greater output, creates research opportunities that would not otherwise occur, enabling research to go further and faster.
There are now over 200 members from 23 countries who have submitted over 40 ideas, leading to 16 new collaborative research projects with additional partnerships currently under consideration.
Furthermore, new connections have been made between members at 27 institutions, 10 of which are outside the UK, from locations across Europe, Africa, North and Central America and Australasia.
Commenting on his experience using RIC-KI, Dr Borja del Pozo Cruz from the University of Southern Denmark said: “Collaborative research is the future. RIC-KI is your go-to platform if you want to engage in cutting edge collaborative projects with physical activity and nutrition researchers internationally.”
RIC-KI is currently listing new ideas, which can be submitted through the online form. Existing ideas can be viewed from the homepage.
