Kenyatta University has a new Division of Research, Innovation and Outreach (RIO) which has established a web presence, a one-stop resource to provide institutional support for staff undertaking research and Research Uptake.
At the African Higher Education Summit held in Dakar in March leading universities established an Alliance of African research intensive universities with the purpose of sharing resources, supporting each other and building excellence in research and research management. In addition the Alliance hopes to serve as a hub that supports research across the African continent.
During a visit by the ACU/DRUSSA team in February 2015 Moi University was able to show its progress in terms of Research Uptake, starting with University-Industry linkages and ending with using radio as a dissemination tool and everything in-between.
Research evidence can inform policy and practice in a variety of ways and through a number of different channels. An essay by Dr Sara Grobbelaar and Dr Nelius Boshoff of CREST at the University of Stellenbosch discusses some of the models and theories in this vast field, and this blog provides a outline of the areas discussed.
