Work Package 3: Assessment of capacity building needs

Objectives

  • Identify national/regional research capacities in Latin American and African consortium partner countries and the respective regions.
  • Identify national/regional capacity building needs in above mentioned countries.
  • Develop a strategic framework for research capacity building in the above mentioned countries.

 

Description of work

This WP builds the basis for comprehensive and locally relevant capacity building, describes and creates paths for developing interdisciplinary research capacity by pointing at links between needs and capacities across sectors, disciplines, countries and regions, particularly supporting south-south learning, exchange and collaboration. WP3 furthermore provides sustainable tools for developing interdisciplinary research capacity in the field of social determinants of health as access to relevant information is provided (resource database) and exchange processes thereby facilitated. In WP3 it is furthermore defined on the basis of the mapping reports elaborated in the context of WP1 and WP2 (strategic framework for research capacity building) which research capacity building measures are needed and how these could be addressed in phase 2.
