Building Capacity in Research Communications and Knowledge Management
The challenges of building the capacity of knowledge management among southern research institutes
Find a GDNetarticle published in the World Journal of Science, Technology and Sustainable Development in 2011 that discusses building the capacity of researchers from developing and transition countries to inform global development research and policy. Highlighting the role of knowledge management as an enabler of change, experiences and lessons learned from building knowledge management capacity are brought to the fore.
Training materials on research communications
Handouts on influencing policy and communicating with the media are available to download from two of GDNet’s regional training workshops for researchers: Policy Engagement Workshop, November 2010 – see the online agenda for handouts. A workshop report is also available, together with videos of the workshop sessions.
Are southern academics virtually connected? This paper forms the first phase of a study commissioned by GDNet into supporting the use of web 2.0 tools for research collaboration by researchers in developing and transition countries.
