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.
Bringing together our project staff, investigators, in-country institutions and partners to support research capacity and training
In this project, we have five methodological hubs to deliver capacity building.
These methodological hubs:
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 and South-South learning
Foster collaboration across study countries through joint initiatives (papers, conferences)
Promote exchange of good practice
We have 8 postdocs, 4 PhD students and 16 research assistants throughout the project. Given the complexity of contexts in which we are undertaking research and the different needs of our in-country partners, a diversity of approaches to capacity building are required. In delivering the activities, we are recognising that the process of capacity building may need to be shaped by adaptation, experimentation, learning.
Capacity building - guiding principles
- Grounded capacity exchange
- Reflexive, critical exchange
- Adaptive, learning approach
What is the experience of doing this as a postdoc, fieldworker in (country)?
- Theory/practice, focus on fieldwork
- Flexible and pragmatic
- Deep rigour in grounded approach
- Commitment to equitable reserch partnerships
Each methodological hub designs their own programme of training and activities, based on their methodological expertise. Find out more below:
