Research is Better Together

Use cases and stories about collaborative international research

Learn from other researchers by browsing our use cases and stories or scroll to the bottom of the page to submit your own to help others. These use cases exemplify the process of working and collaborating with international partners in order to satisfy the Nagoya Protocol regulations put into place in that particular country. The stories are anecdotal accounts of benefits of research collaboration.

Use Cases


Submit your own use case or story!

The Nagoya Protocol Learning Portal wants to hear from you! Share your use case or tell us your story so it can go on to help other researchers understand the benefits of collaboration and learn more about navigating country-specific Nagoya regulations. 

Submitting your use case or story is very easy! The use case submission form has more structure to it while the story submission is more open ended. None of the fields in the use case form are required so if you can’t fill out all of the fields we still encourage you to submit! If you’re not sure where to begin, check out our top FAQs in the next tab, or look at our Guide to Submitting Use Cases and Stories.

We understand that submitting these use cases and stories can be a sensitive task. If you’re worried about remaining anonymous in your submission, feel free to reach out to us. We won’t share anything about your case without your explicit permission.

More FAQs can be found in our ‘Ask the Community’ section. Still no answer? Ask the community, or email us, we would love to hear from you!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us! Please use the buttons below to navigate to either the use case form or the story form.

For Use Cases: Please fill the fields out as best you can. If you don’t have information for all of the fields, submit anyways! The important thing is to get what you do have out for the scientific community to learn from. 

For Stories: Include pictures if you have them and make sure to credit the photographer or creator if they’re not your pictures.
