Session 4

Influencing and engaging with others to increase the impact of our work — Research is vital for countries to meet development challenges, but for this to be effective it needs to be taken up and used. We need to effectively communicate what we’re doing, and to influence those that can make a difference on a variety of levels – from faculty, university leaders to publishers, funders and national agencies. This session will explore some of the ways this is being achieved.
