Strategies to Promote the Utilization of USAID-Funded Research Results
Research Uptake Brief
This brief offers strategies to help individuals and teams who produce USAID-funded research to position their findings to be used by key stakeholders within and external to USAID. It focuses on strategies for promoting research uptake, which is distinct from, but related to, research communication and dissemination.
This brief also offers strategies gleaned from conversational interviews with contacts in various positions within USAID during the fall of 2019. Insights from these conversations are complemented with recommendations from other relevant sources, including guidance on research uptake provided by other funding organizations and academic researchers working in centers focused on research utilization among policymakers and practitioners.
