Upcoming event: Experiences of research uptake from REFANI


On Tuesday 4th October, The Research on Food Assistance for Nutritional Impact (REFANI) Consortium is hosting a panel discussion which will focus on successful research uptake strategies and practices employed by REFANI’s operational and research partners. REFANI is comprised of two operational partners (Action Against Hunger and Concern Worldwide) and two research partners (ENN and University College London).

The event will take place at Adam House in London between 15.00 and 17.00. It follows an earlier discussion hosted by REFANI in February 2016. The discussion in February, entitled ‘Research Uptake in a Humanitarian Context: Insights on Designing and Implementing a Research Uptake Strategy’, brought together individuals from a range of fields and provided diverse insights into practices used across different organisations.

This follow-up event, ‘What Does It Mean to Implement a Research Uptake Strategy? Experiences from the REFANI Consortium’ aims to provide attendees with an in-depth understanding of how each person on a research project, irrespective of job title, can provide expertise and facilitate the utilisation of evidence across stakeholders in policy and practice.
