Date : 22nd-24th June 2011

Venue : Devonshire Hall, University of Leeds, UK

Africa College, a research partnership led by University of Leeds. IITA and ICIPE is holding an international knowledge brokering conference on impact. The goal of this conference is to demonstrate and share lessons on how to translate research results into impact on food security and human health in sub-Saharan Africa. The conference has two objectives:

.   To determine how the results of basic science and inter-disciplinary research lead to impact on food security and human health.

.   To explore how partnerships between research and development organisations deliver innovation and impact.

To help achieve these objectives, three central questions will be asked throughout the conference :

.   What impacts have been achieved from the use of research results  ?

.   How were impacts achieved ?

.   What lessons are there for researchers and users of research to increase the impact of research ?
