Event Details

As a school of public health, the School is extensively engaged in capacity strengthening for research, in low, middle and high income countries, including the UK and Europe.

The purpose of this year’s symposium is to:

  • Develop a common understanding of what we mean by research capacity strengthening, in countries at all levels of development

  • Share our experience of research capacity strengthening at individual, institutional, consortia and national levels and in different country and regional contexts

  • Identify examples of best practice in research capacity strengthening, including how to monitor and evaluate capacity strengthening efforts

  • Reflect on our collective experience and identify how we can improve what we do, within the current funding context

  • Help develop the School’s approach to research capacity strengthening and relationships with partners in order to ensure sustainable research excellence.

A copy of the outline programme is available on the intranet.

The symposium also presents an opportunity for LSHTM staff and research students based both in London and overseas to participate during the week in other research meetings, as well as talent and educational development sessions.
