Impact Lab Learning Guide: Building capacity to engage with non-academic audiences

Many international development research projects aim to go far beyond influencing academic debate – they also seek to build relationships and networks, influence attitudes and behaviours, and inform policy and practice. Contributing to impacts of this kind (whether instrumental, conceptual, building capacity or strengthening networks) requires engaging with a broad range of non-academic audiences.

This Learning Guide seeks to draw out some of the key lessons on successful approaches to engaging non-academic audiences for impactful research.
