IDRC TTI Regional Meeting

The IDRC TTI Regional Meeting of 16 South Asian grantee institutions took place at Mysore, during 4-6 March 2012. The meeting was organized by the Centre for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP), India.

The objective of the meeting was to promote structured peer-learning on high priority institutional issues identified by grantees themselves; enable networking and collaborative efforts at institutional levels as well as at project levels among grantees; feed structured South Asia regional input into the aims and objectives of the First Think Tank Initiative Exchange (global meeting of all TTI grantees to be held at Cape Town in June 2012); and provide opportunities for programme learning on select research questions, including questions around research quality, impact, and institutional sustainability.

Dr. Saman Kelegama, Executive Director, Dr. Dushni Weerakoon, Deputy Director and Dr. Malathy Knight, Research Fellow, IPS, participated and made contributions at this Regional Meeting.
