Knowledge in action training

Knowledge in Action training aims to strengthen the ability of researchers to disseminate and communicate the results of their research and support uptake of research results.

Communicating research results to policy makers, practitioners and other stakeholders in the right format, at the right time, and trough the right channels requires planning, skills, and contacts.

Danida Fellowship Centre therefore offers the following support to research collaboration projects:

  • Training on how to make a communications and engagements plan
  • Science for the public – training on how to communicate research to the general public – and how to get attention from the media
  • Bridging the gap – seminars for researchers and journalist in Danida priority/the Strategic Sector Corporation partner countries to break down silos between academia and media
  • Engagement and advocacy training, including on how to make good policy briefs
