From Research to Development - Mutual Learning for Change
The Annual Conference of the KFPE in collaboration with NewMinE of the University of Lugano
23 October 2009, at the University of Lugano (12:00 - 16:00)
Focus of the Conference Research partnerships with developing and transition countries strive to contribute to sustainable development and to improve the living conditions of the populations in these countries. Implementation of new knowledge and research results into practice or policy or up-scaling of successful research projects therefore lies at the core of such projects and remains a major challenge.
The Annual Conference of the KFPE will present case studies from research partnership projects that generated new knowledge and that also demonstrate how results were implemented and applied. Implementation of research results and exchange with various stakeholders will be the main focus of the conference. The case studies presented at the conference will include direct video connections to partners in developing and transition countries to give them a chance to present their experience and to talk about factors that enable or enhance implementation, or about factors that hinder the application of research results.
Posters will be presented mainly during lunchtime (between 12:00 and 13:00) but will be on display throughout the conference. Persons that exhibit a poster will be present at the conference. Also the posters have a clear focus on implementation of research results.
