Our Partners

We work with a range of partners – from international research and development funders, government departments, non-government organisations, research institutions, collaborations, laboratories, national disease control programmes, and implementing agencies – to generate robust evidence to guide the design of capacity strengthening programmes, improve practices, and measure effectiveness. 

Examples of partnership activities we have completed include:

  • For funders we developed a framework and a set of indicators to improve research capacity strengthening evaluation practice offering practical guidance for improving evaluations of research capacity strengthening programmes. Frameworks & Indicators
  • In collaboration with a large-scale research capacity strengthening initiative, we have produced research-based learning about how to train and develop world-class researchers, foster their careers and collaborations, and promote research uptake. DELTAS
  • We are working with multiple sub-Saharan African research capacity strengthening consortia to applying a standard set of predetermined indicators to track and document institutional-level research capacity strengthening outcomes. This enables us to answer priority ‘cross-programme’ research questions in an effort to strengthen the research capacity strengthening evidence-base. HORN, CEPaS, PIIVeC
