About research uptake

In order to share knowledge and enhance uptake of research DeltaMAR seeks to integrate the following four complementary and interrelated sets of activities:

  • Context analysis and stakeholder engagement: early engagement and investing in building relationships with relevant stakeholders
  • Knowledge sharing and communication: knowledge sharing and communication are central to enhancing the availability, relevance and accessibility of research
  • Assessing and strengthening research uptake capacities: this concerns both internal capacities (consortium/team) as well as the capacities of stakeholders
  • Monitoring, learning & evaluation: Research uptake objectives and expected results are integrated as outcomes and outputs in the project’s Theory of Change

DeltaMAR’s approach to research uptake is inspired by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID)
