IRIC - ECRU Co-Creation Workshop 1

IRIC-ECRU is intended to bring together and build a generation of researchers advancing new and relevant approaches in researcher development processes, research, dissemination, engagement and impact to accelerate the Uganda’s R&I agenda. As such, PhD students and ECRs are mobilised from across universities, empowered through the capacity building activities, engaged in joint research endeavors and facilitated to disseminate their research outputs for impact.

The co-creation workshops are part of the process of empowering the IRIC community members to gain skills for productive involvement in advancing the community’s agenda. The objectives of the workshops are therefore to:

  1. Enhance the community members’ intellectual and personal abilities to do research and make research products usable.
  2. They run for a week to provide sufficient time to the community members to network, bond and build ties for continual mutual support.
  3. Nurture teams for engagement in the development of empirical research projects as proposed in the sustainability plans for subsequent years of the IRIC community.
