This workshop will familiarize researchers with knowledge translation, research uptake, and scaling research results to enhance accessibility and transfer. This workshop attempts to better understand how the scaling of research and innovation can occur in a variety of settings, and are part of a research intended to improve how proven development approaches can be more broadly disseminated and used to create positive impact.
Using information from the IDRC scaling science study – attendees will examine a selection of other research projects in order to apply and develop skills in the use of the scaling approach. This workshop will also present cases studies from IDRC programs to illustrate success in the area of scaling research results. These case studies will provide concrete examples of largely successful scaling strategies, and relate these experiences to a set of developing scaling principles.
