Ajoy Datta is a Research Officer at the Overseas Development Institute. His expertise lies in knowledge interaction processes (including research communications, knowledge brokering, policy influence work and public engagement processes), key intermediaries (such as think tanks, networks and legislators), policy processes and knowledge use (including understanding policymaker incentives and providing advice for them to make better use of knowledge) and sustainably developing capacities of human systems.
Research to Action (R2A) is a website catering for the strategic and practical needs of people trying to improve the uptake of development research, in particular those funded by DFID.
We have structured the site and populated it with material that we think will be immediately useful to this audience, but also to development researchers in general who would like to be more strategic and effective in their communications.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
