The event will explore new understandings of research engagement that have emerged during the pandemic in LMIC settings.  This will have implications for the funding of research and research engagement strategies during the current crisis, and the recovery phase and for building future heath emergency resilience.

This webinar, chaired by Peter Taylor, Director of Research at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and Daniela Toale COVID CIRCLE Programme Manager, will explore the following questions:

  • Who gets to participate in research engagement activities and why?
  • Which forms of knowledge are valued by practitioners, policy actors and communities and why?
  • Which channels, stakeholders and spaces are targeted?
  • In what ways has the pandemic shaped research engagement in LMIC contexts?

Rapid Review  
A rapid review will be produced alongside the event which will explore the different pathways to impact applied by research projects from a range of scientific disciplines, geographies, and funding organisations. A preliminary review will be shared with participants in the week prior to the event, with a view of discussing the content further during the session. The following researcher coordination networks will be included in the review:

The report will be finalised for publication shortly afterwards and shared with all participants.
