The Global Development Awards Competition is an innovative award scheme launched by GDN with support from the Ministry of Finance, Government of Japan.
The awards recognize excellence in policy-oriented research, support the research capacity development of researchers in low and middle income countries, and fund innovative social development projects benefiting marginalized groups in the developing world. The annual competition has a new, relevant theme every year. GDN provides grants through its awards competition under two main categories:
The Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development
The Japanese Award for Most Innovative Development Project
For more information and to enter these awards, please visit the GDN website.
Research To Action (R2A) is a learning platform for anyone interested in maximising the impact of research and capturing evidence of impact.
The site publishes practical resources on a range of topics including research uptake, communications, policy influence and monitoring and evaluation. It captures the experiences of practitioners and researchers working on these topics and facilitates conversations between this global community through a range of social media platforms.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
