Facilitating collaboration between science granting councils and think tanks in West Africa for IDRC

Supported by  International Development Research Center (IDRC),
This project delivers a workshop to foster relationship building between two important actors in the knowledge ecosystem in Francophone West Africa.

The International Development Research Center (IDRC) has provided longstanding financial and capacity building support to strengthen local research ecosystems across Francophone West Africa. 

To support this work, IDRC hired OTT to organise a half day workshop to promote collaboration between science granting councils and policy research organisations across the region. The workshop will focus on:  

  1. Research uptake and  strategic communications to bridge the gap between research and policy. 
  2. Resource mobilisation to explore creative avenues for fundraising. 


December – February 2022
