There is currently a growing academic and institutional interest in issues of capacity building and research partnerships. It is widely recognized that North/South partnerships are fundamental to attaining innovation, leading to improvements in virtually every social field, including science, technology and health. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 17 is specifically focused on research partnerships, which attests to the relevance of this topic. Although there are already some guidelines and compliance tools in place related to capacity building and research partnerships – including the recently developed Research Fairness Initiative – there is very few scholarly work on the experiences of academics who undergo these processes, and the methodological and practical aspects of capacity building are often overlooked.
