The Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI) and its 16 research institution partners have now completed the signing of core funding agreement by May 26, 2014. “We are excited to reach this milestone. Our partner institutions are now able to invest in capacity building activities that they have not previously been able to fund,” said Ben Hillman, KSI Senior Advisor.
?The core funding is designed to strengthen policy research institutes’ capacity to produce high quality research that can serve as an intellectual foundation for public debate and policy making. Capacity building activities proposed by partners include: government engagement and policy advocacy, research communication, and quality research production and management. These activities will be implemented within one year, based on partners’ own timeline.
