CCRP Regional Research Methods Workshop

Monday, February 13, 2017 to Friday, February 17, 2017

Maanzoni Lodge, Lukenya, near Nairobi, Kenya

Aims of the workshop
The overall aim is to support projects and grantees to improve the quality and coherence of research through deeper reflection and peer-to peer learning, leading to more insightful data analysis and innovative design of research questions, data collection and handling. FOR MORE ON WORKSHOP AIMS AND APPROACH PLEASE VIEW THE RMS WORKSHOPS LOGISTICS PDF.

Participation
The workshop is open to members of CCRP project teams working in Eastern or Southern Africa.  There is no fixed number of places per project. Instead, individuals should apply (see below) for places at the workshop. The organizers will then allocate places based on the applications, the need to balance the workshop members in various ways – for example, having a mix of more and less experienced participants – and CCRP priorities as well as on the overall budget. We expect project teams to collectively discuss who they would like to come, and to help individuals make a convincing case in their applications.

Applications
Apply by completing an application form and sending it by email to Linnet Gohole (Eastern Africa Regional Representative, email: lgohole@gmail.com) by Saturday 14th January 2017. Successful applicants will be informed by 21st January 2017 and will then be sent information about preparing for the workshop.
