CSTC is partnering with the Ghana Information Network for Knowledge Sharing (GINKS) to pilot and adopt a new course on Evidence -Informed Policy Making as part of the VakaYiko project. George Amoah co-led the first pilot of the EIPM course at CSTC in April 2015 in collaboration with CSTC in-house trainers. As a published researcher himself in the areas of trade and foreign direct investment, George Amoah was able to share unique insights from his academic as well as his professional experience on the role of research in public policymaking.
