Capacity Building

In this project, we have five methodological hubs, each led by a LMIC researcher, to deliver capacity building. Individually, these hubs act as centres for conducting methodology and subject specific research and activities and collectively they form a network of researchers, allowing South-South learning and capacity building.

Methodological hubs are to: 

  • Support and deliver capacity building activities, based on in-hub expertise  

  • Support methodological development of researchers at all levels 

  • Foster peer-to-peer support for junior and mid-level researchers to deliver the project 

  • Foster collaboration across study countries through joint initiatives (papers, conferences) 

  • Promote exchange of good practice 

Capacity Building team structure


We have 8 postdocs, 4 PhD students and 16 research assistants throughout the project. The hubs support effective implementation and delivery of relevant skills to junior researchers. The goal is to improve their skills and support them in playing an effective role in this project and beyond.   

Each methodological hub designs their own programme of training and activities, based on their methodological expertise. Find out more below:
