Introduction to USAID's Research Translation Toolkit
The USAID Research Division and USAID's Research Technical Assistance Center (RTAC) invites USAID staff and partners to a four-part webinar series that provides an overview of our Research Translation Toolkit and a deep dive into each of its three sections. This toolkit is particularly relevant to those supporting or implementing research projects who can benefit from step-by-step guidance on communicating key messages to the right decision-makers.
Throughout this webinar series, we will highlight what the toolkit is, why it is important to your work, when you can use it in the research process, and how you can use it yourself.
Guest speakers will share real-world examples of how they have used the processes from the toolkit in their work.
You can register for each webinar using the links below.
