OUR CAPACITY BUILDING ACTIVITIES

In order to ensure that our research and expertise reach as wide an audience as possible, IPIS often complements research with capacity building. Increasingly, IPIS also offers stand-alone capacity building, designed to meet the needs and knowledge gaps identified by partners and clients.

IPIS’ capacity building activities entail a wide range of support and collaboration:

  1. Collaborative research
  2. Co-authored publications and editorial advice
  3. Methodological and thematic training modules

Our trainings are tailored to specific time-frames, geographies and needs. A training module can be reshaped in a way that will allow our audiences get the most out of it. This includes translation of materials in other languages and context-specific adaptation of the module’s content.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of the capacity building modules we offer and / or have recently conducted. We can also be commissioned to offer capacity building on new topics, provided they lie within IPIS’ existing themes and expertise.
