Doing Research is a unique GDN program that contributes to a better objective assessment of social science research systems in developing countries, to identify gaps that can be addressed through research policy.
The Building Research Capacity in Least Developed Countries program supports research institutions in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to strengthen their research and outreach skills in a sustainable manner.
GDN is now aiming to scale up the Doing Research program to 50 countries. During this scale up, it is implementing the Doing Research Assessment in 3-5 countries as proof of concept. See details of the kick-off.
Doing Research Assessment is the method used to assess the performance of a social science research system. The methodology is further detailed in the GDN working document on Doing Research Assessments.
