December 2020: Save the date – March 3 2021 for workshop “How organisations best support and encourage the planning of research for impact”

The next NITRO-Oceania workshop will be on Wednesday 3 March 2021. As with the successful impact narratives workshop we held in June 2020, this will be a virtual meeting, using Zoom or a similar platform.

The topic will be “How organisations best support and encourage the planning of research for impact”. We are targeting those people who are involved in, and influence or have oversight of, the design of research programmes which aspire to have inter- or transdisciplinary methodologies at their heart. We want to explore questions such as:

  • The role of communities and stakeholders in programme development
  • The ways in which indigenous knowledge systems inform transdisciplinary research practice and positive outcomes for indigenous peoples.
  • Shared experiences in co-design – what has worked and what hasn’t, and what are the key success factors in impactful research?

We are interested in examining these issues from multiple perspectives, including those of researchers, practitioners, funders and communities. The workshop will use a mix of pre-recorded presentations, panel discussion, and group work in breakout mode, to improve our understanding of how we (as leaders) can drive the design of research programmes that will contribute to meaningful changes “on the ground”.
