In order to highlight the critical role that doctors, researchers, librarians and policymakers play in advocating their leaders to support research in their institutions and countries, Research4Life has joined efforts with INASP to run the 2016 Research4Life/INASP advocacy competition.
The competition calls for case studies demonstrating how users have overcome hurdles to boost critical leadership support for the information and infrastructural resources needed to improve evidence based health care, agriculture and environmental policies as well as basic research in their countries.
The competition is open to all researchers, practitioners, librarians and library staff whose institution is either a registered user of one of the Research4Life programmes – Hinari, AGORA, OARE and ARDI – or who have access to online journals or books as a result of deals intermediated via INASP.
Deadline: September 15th 2016
