The world is more interconnected than ever, and global research is no exception. But when scientists work together across borders, who wins — and who, if anyone, loses?

Professor Caroline Wagner, author of ‘The New Invisible College’ and ‘The Collaborative Era In Science’, joins Toby Wardman of SAPEA to discuss the brave new world of cross-border science, and what, if anything, we can do about it.
