New from DFID: Guide to Research Uptake (2013) Print
Monday, 08 July 2013 00:00

This guide to Research Uptake produced by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) provides information on the donor’s approach to Research Uptake and practical advice for designing a Research Uptake strategy for the research projects that it funds. This is a useful, high-level guide on the various stages of developing, implementing and monitoring a Research Uptake strategy. 

The document is intended as a “beginner’s guide”, specifically covering the topics of stakeholder engagement, capacity building, communicating and monitoring and evaluation. Also included is a Research Uptake Checklist as an aid for programmes when reviewing strategies along the way and links to additional online resources.
It is important to note that the document has been designed for programmes and projects that already have research funding from DFID. While funding for research comes from many different sources and only some projects are funded by DFID, the guide could nonetheless also be very useful for projects that have yet to source funding.

The guide to research uptake is indeed very good and simple to understand by those very new to research uptake. Personally, I am one of those interacting with research uptake as a new concept...I have been able to understand what it is all about and will be in position to talk about research uptake with knowledge. Thank you DRUSSA.
