ResUp Symposium and Training Exchange 2015

Our researchers, Emmy Kageha Igonya and Darisuk Kharlyngdoh, will be attending the ResUp Symposium and Training Exchange from February 9th - 12th, in Nairobi, Kenya. The ResUp Symposium aims to explore emerging issues within, and develop a deeper understanding of, the evolving convept of 'research uptake.' The ResUp Training Exchange will centre around a range of skills associated with research uptake activities.

Emmy and Darisuk will each be presenting their research from the case studies, and will be discussing the opporunities and callenges of research uptake as part of this research. They will also be jointly providing a training session on Digital Storytelling, a methodology that they both used as part of their research.
