(Un)usual suspects: science for using research (SURe) programme
For the research project ‘An unusual suspect: the private sector in knowledge brokering in international development’, supported by the NWO-WOTRO Science for Using Research (SURe) programme, The Broker assists in supporting research uptake and bridging the academic-policy divide by disseminating findings, promoting research uptake and offering guidance in reaching the project’s primary audiences by means of various forms of (digital) communication.
The Broker’s services aim to:
1) improve the understanding of the (Un)usual suspects project and overarching SURe programme among target audiences;
2) keep the project ‘on the radar’, drawing continuous attention to the project and its contents;
3) enhance research uptake and develop actionable translations of academic findings to policy-relevant publications.
Our knowledge brokers work in close cooperation with researcher Sarah Cummings and have delivered the following products and services: writing and publishing ‘popular’ and accessible articles to present the findings of the project; formulating policy briefs based on research that highlights policy-relevant conclusions; translating complex findings into more accessible and actionable output; assisting in organising workshops; knowledge dissemination and communication to foster research uptake; facilitating a lunch-meeting at the MFA.
