Highlights of the event::
- Bringing together senior academics, policy makers and other stakeholders to promote a Science-Policy dialogue
- Facilitating the exchange of information between main stakeholders and stimulate both the supply of and demand for development focused research and the wider adoption of research uptake practices within the higher education sector
- Fostering interaction between members of the academic community and stakeholders to adopt a holistic and inclusive approach to the implications of policy measures amidst global changes. This empowered researchers to better understand the potential developmental outcomes of their own research and, where appropriate, establish research agendas that can also support national policy agendas.
