What will the webinar cover?
Colleagues across the ACU membership are invited to join this webinar hosted by Dr Vicki Doyle and Ema Kelly of Capacity Development International (CDI), who will be presenting and discussing key findings from their independent review of the CIRCLE institutional strengthening programme (ISP).
Webinar participants will discover programme learning and recommendations for future institutional strengthening activities under the FCDO's broader Climate and Resilience Framework Programme (CLARE). Questions, comments, and reflections will also be encouraged via the chat function and a live Q&A session.
What is the ISP?
The Institutional Strengthening Programme forms part of the Climate Impacts Research Capacity and Leadership Enhancement (CIRCLE) programme funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (UK FCDO).
From 2015-20, the ISP supported 31 institutions across 10 countries in sub-Saharan Africa to enhance professional development support for early career academic staff, and develop stronger institutional frameworks for quality research. The ISP was managed by the ACU in partnership with Vitae UK.
Who should attend?
This event is free and open for all to attend.
We particularly encourage attendance from CIRCLE participants, as well as senior and mid-career academics across the ACU membership, who are interested in supporting researcher development and research capacity-strengthening at their institutions.Click to register
