Putting Research Knowledge at the Heart of Development

Skip to content Register Log in


We are an international development charity working with a global network of partners to improve access, production and use of research information and knowledge, so that countries are equipped to solve their development challenges.

We have been working to support such research and knowledge systems and many elements of the research communications cycle for over 20 years. In particular, we work to strengthen the availability, access and use of international research information by researchers in developing countries and the production, quality, dissemination and access of research outputs from researchers in those same countries. 

By building capacity at individual, institutional, national and international levels, we have seen significant improvement in the research and knowledge sector in many of the countries with which we work.
