Through the Enhance DELTAS programme, AFIDEP has conducted a series of week-long workshops on policy engagement and evidence uptake between October 2020 and February 2021. The workshops targeted PhD and post-doctoral early career researchers as well as consortium leaders or senior researchers who are responsible for leading research uptake and sought to enrich the skills of individuals to maximise research uptake and policy engagement. Subsequent webinars and a mentorship programme followed.
Enhance DELTAS is a programme led by the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) and funded by the Wellcome Trust. It seeks to provide research uptake and policy engagement support to awardees of the Developing Excellence in Leadership, Training and Science (DELTAS) Africa initiative, led by the African Academy of Sciences.
