About Us

Research to Action (R2A) is an initiative catering for the strategic and practical needs of people trying to improve the way development research is communicated and utilised.

Our mission is to guide and support effective research engagement and communication. The result of which can “help give research a chance” to inform decision-making processes, bring about social change and have ‘impact’. We believe that if research is made more interesting, accessible and relevant to policymakers and practitioners, it will be more likely be utilised.

We have structured the site and populated it with material that we think will be immediately useful to people  who would like to be more strategic and effective in their research communication and engagement.

R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
